One thing that could be causing confusion is the message on the page saying nothing found. Ignore that bit and hit the menu button on the page and the drop down pops up with the PayPal links to purchase. Had me snookered for a second when I bought my copy.
It's a good book, you should all buy one. :wink:

Cheers
Paul.

For those who are interested, the biography of Harry Webster, author of '2750, Legend of a Locomotive' and one time ADMPS at Kings Cross in the early to mid 30s is available here https://www.manofsteam.co.uk/ for £14.50 inc P&P.

As part of his duties he was on board during the record breaking runs of Gresley's 2750, Papyrus and the first A4, 2509, Silver Link.

Dorienne Roughley, a public thank you for bringing what I know is going to be a favourite book to us

Does this book say where driver Bill Sparshatt (Sparshott) and the firemen for record breaking locos were from?
