The Longmoor Military Railway A New History Volume Two: World War Two and the Cold War Era
- The Longmoor Military Railway
- A New History Volume Two: World War Two and the Cold War Era
- For sixty years the British Army operated a railway dedicated to training soldiers to operate a complete strategic rail supply system. This is the story of that enterprise, originally called the Woolmer Instructional Military Railway, which later became the Longmoor Military Railway.
- Volume One covers the early developments of the 19th century in regard to military railways in general and then in relation to the British Army, the construction of the line, its growth in the Great War and its subsequent decline through to its rebirth in the 1920s and 30s, ending with the mobilisation of the railway troops in September 1939.
- Volume Two takes the story through the years of World War Two and the Cold War Era to 1965.
- Volume Three will carry the story to its conclusion with the closure of the Longmoor Military Railway and contain details of the locomotives and rolling stock.
- This is destined to become the definitive history of the Longmoor Military Railway.
- Colonel David Ronald was the last commanding officer at Longmoor and Mike Christensen is well known as an authority on British military railways and on British railway signalling practice.
