If you are a regular already, then it's worth another visit to check out the new additions. Here is just one which arrived yesterday:

Fire & Steam: A New History of the Railways in Britain
by Christian Wolmar

This book is a wide-ranging history of the rail network from the rise of the steam train to electrification, including the contribution of railways to World War One and World War Two. Wolmar covers the social and economic importance of rail and how it has contributed to the Britain of today. He talks interestingly of the rail network's role in such varied fields as industrialisation, fish & chips, professional football, daytrippers, investment and more.
