Rapidly Round the Bend Short Review of RY History Ellis
Rapidly Round The Bend By C Hamilton Ellis 120 Pages Dust Jacket  Copyright 1959, 2nd  impression 1960
C. Hamilton Ellis, well known for his radio talks and television appearances and author of several serious and scholarly books on railways now blows the gaff (or should it be gasket?) and gives us a glorious spoof history of railways.
From Ur of the Chaldees (did you know they had a railway?) it rockets along via the Stephenson (George and Robert Louis) to the discovery of Clapham Junction and the Unremunerafive Branch Line.
With its irreverent perversion of names, dates, facts, Famous Lines and Notable Accidents and the author's own delightful period illustrations this is the book for every train-spotter, and even for those who cannot tell the difference between a Royal Scot and a Merchant Navy.

All pictures are of the actual item.  If this is a railroad item, this material is obsolete and no longer in use by the railroad.  Please email with questions.
