The British Railway Stories 2
Great Western Glory
This is the second companion book to The British Railway Stories, and rich in imagery and history, just like the Tale of the Unnamed Engine as the origin story for the characters made a cult hit through YouTube.
Join Stanley and his family, and the kindly Princess and her friends King George, Clifford Castle and Squaddie in this great adventure, for the whole family as they try to preserve the very best of the sights and sounds of Britain's railways as they used to be!
This impressive second story once again features supremely detailed, hand-coloured, original illustrations by Dean Walker, capturing the hearts of a whole new generation of young minds as they journey with our heroes through time alongside Great Western steam engines great and small.
The stories originally existed as a made for YouTube Video Series for children in the 7-11 age group.
Since the first video appeared on YouTube in 2007, and the final episode of the original series in March 2012. The videos featuring these charming and endearing characters and many more besides, have racked up over 10 million views globally as of 2021.
This book has been written primarily for children ages 7-11, but has been written with parents reading aloud and with children in mind.
