From the rear side cover: The main line from London Waterloo to Bournemouth, and on to Weymouth, had the dubious distinction of being the last preserve of regular steam-operated passenger services in and out of the capital, steam finally bowing out on Sunday 9 July 1967.
In this book, Tom Heavyside takes us on a trip from London to Bournemouth in the 1960s calling at such places as Nine Elms, Weybridge, Winchfield, Basingstoke, Winchester, Eastleigh and Southampton en route. We also take a trip across The Solent to the Isle of Wight, where steam reigned on the much-reduced network until the last day of 1966. So join us as we set out for Steam Destination Bournemouth....
