The Arbroath and Forfar line opened in 1839, and before long it was possible to travel from Dundee to Forfar without the need to change trains. The Arbroath and Forfar Railway was soon taken over, eventually by the Caledonian Railway, but its position on the principal route between Glasgow and Aberdeen ensured that at least part of its line would remain open until 1967. The Kirriemuir branch train services tended to be centred on the Forfar-Arbroath-Dundee axis, so it has been included. The Dundee to Forfar Direct line is also described. The book is presented in A5 format and consists of 240 pages which include more than 150 photographs, plans etc. It has a full laminated colour card cover with a square-backed spine.
