|Built by the Great Marlow Railway Company, this 2½ mile branch line linked the riverside town of Marlow with the High Wycombe line at Bourne End. The train was affectionately known as the 'Marlow Donkey'.
Based on wide-ranging archive material and personal interviews with staff, this book not only traces the fascinating story of the independent company and its relations with the GWR, but details some of the personalities involved and traces the line's development and operation to the end of steam.
