The year is 1964 and a small boy passes his fifth birthday playing on a derelict railway line. The place is Upwey Junction in Dorset, where the Abbotsbury branch used to leave the main line London to Weymouth railway.
The last remnants of rail had been removed just a few weeks previously as part of a relentless process of railway closures in the Britain of the 1950s, ‘60s and 70s.
The boy is David Henshaw who came, like his contemporaries, to accept an ever-shrinking railway network as part of the British way of life.
Only now, with the railways growing at a rate unprecedented in their long history, is the loss of so many useful routes so dearly felt.
Inspired by such childhood memories, David Henshaw sets out to out the record straight in The Great Railway Conspiracy.
