I've had an e-mail from Peter Clayton, author of the book "The Iron Road to Sóller", who has some copies of his book available at special rates - here's the content of his message so if you're interested let me know and I'll put you in touch with him.
"Many potential purchasers of my book "The Iron Road To Soller" have reported increasing difficulties in obtaining copies, both in the UK and in Majorca. Consequently I have purchased a quantity direct from the publishers and am able to supply them by mail order.
As you know, the book was written in a non-technical style for visitors to the island and the railway. Although it was first published in 1992, the only real change (very slightly!) is the train timetable. Therefore with each copy, I have included an updated and full 2001 train tabletable. If you know anyone who wants a copy, I can send them direct at a cost of £6
including all postage and packing, or £10 for two. (larger quantities at negotiated rates!!)".
Here's a picture of the cover of his book.
That would appear to be all I can lay my hands on just now - this new format is much more labour-intensive and tiring to produce than the old one, especially for someone who does all his preparation with nothing more professional than notepad.exe !! I know there are other things which I've probably forgotten to include but they'll just have to wait until next month's newsletter. Thanks again to all my contributors and supporters, any comments on the revised format OR contents will be appreciated.
