Mr Cobb, having paid for and promptly received “The Atlas” – Thank You – I admit to shedding a tear or two when to-day I received the result of your Father’s work. Those more successful then I have been in life already have had access to this remarkable work for some time. I have had to wait a little longer. But, what a wait! Golly!
Like many before me, having found access to your Father’s remarkable work, I immediately went to pages showing railways which I knew well..... But then my searches started to range further than the boundaries of my beloved GWR to find out what was going on, cartographically speaking, seeking details in obscure parts of Scotland, around Birmingham, Bristol and railway haunts from one’s enjoyable boyhood during which so much time was spent watching trains.
I would love to have met the good Colonel.
With best wishes
