In terms of public image, the scooter has long played second fiddle to the motorcycle. Of course, there is a large dose of stereotype in the readings of both kinds of machines and at heart both have provided the same thing: escape, independence, mobility and a certain kind of cool. Following on from Chris Haddon's highly successful my cool motorcycle, my cool scooter showcases beautiful scooters from all corners of the world and celebrates the scooter's history thus far. The humble scooter is much more than a mode of transport - it is fashionable, stylish and trendy. As many of the stories featured in this book demonstrate, owners take their scooters on miraculous adventures from city streets to glorious country escapes. The book explores the most iconic brands of scooter from the well-known Vespa to the classic Goggo. Each section covers a selection of historical information, owners' stories and vehicle notes. For scooter owners or those interested in scooter history this book will inspire and intrigue readers.

Since the publication of the last edition of this popular illustrated pocket guide, there have been significant changes to the railway signalling infrastructure in use in Britain which is reflected in the new edition. The book contains new material on the planned changes in traffic management, the development of signalling control centres dependent on modular signalling, the new signalling for Thameslink, and new forms of level crossing protection with obstacle detection, as well as more detail on ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System), all part of a process to eventually replace the traditional signalling on Britain's railway network.

Created fifty years ago after a three-way conversation in a public house, the Old Gaffers Association grew into a group of enthusiasts who rescued a vital part of our maritime heritage from almost certain extinction. This jaunty celebration, lavishly illustrated, demonstrates how gaff-rigged sailing vessels are alive in a way no other boat could ever be. In this book their owners tell of their stylish, characterful and sea-kindly craft - and some of their adventures. There are tales, too, of solo sailors and families embarking on voyages across the oceans that have seen the Old Gaffers Association become a world-wide community. Jim Rockeller, owner of the Bald Mountain Boat Works in Camden, Maine, and instigator of the first OGA group in America, wrote of the OGA in 1968: 'Membership requirements are simple. One needn't know the difference between a throat and a peak halyard; one need only know that putting to sea in a gaff-rigged vessel is a special kind of magic not found in other kinds of sailing.' This magic of traditional sailing has cast its spell much closer to home, too - simply messing about in boats, alone, joining in regattas or cruising with families and friends. This book will delight every boating enthusiast. As the cheers greeting the traditional boats that graced The Queen's Jubilee Thames Pageant showed, they bring out the salty seadog in us all.

The little boat with a big past: the fight to save one of the most important artefacts of Australian military history. For many years, thousands of people have walked past an unassuming black timber fishing boat bobbing in the water down at the wharves of Sydney's Darling Harbour. But appearances can be deceptive. This humble little trawler played a key role in one of World War II's most audacious and successful commando raids. In September 1943, fourteen young Z special operatives sailed the small fishing boat from Australia to Japanese-occupied Singapore. Battling deadly tides, fierce storms, hostile ships and detection from the air, this little ship and its courageous young crew made it to the heart of the enemy stronghold to make a daring raid that destroyed 30,000 tonnes of enemy shipping. Operation Jaywick still rates as one of the greatest Special Forces operations of all time. But its story doesn't end there. Neglected and left to rot for years, it has taken a mighty and concerted effort by a dedicated few to save and restore the little ship with a big past and display it as a permanent memorial to Australian Special Forces. The Mighty Krait is a compelling, uplifting and unforgettable story of Australian military history - and the importance of reminding all Australians of the courage and service of our armed forces.

It was a desperate mission that made front-page headlines and captured the attention of millions of readers around the world. In January 1998, in the dead of an Alaskan winter, a cataclysmic Arctic storm with hurricane-force winds and towering seas forced five fishermen to abandon their vessel in the Gulf of Alaska and left them adrift in thirty-eight-degree water with no lifeboat. Their would-be rescuers were 150 miles away at the Coast Guard station, with the nearby airport shut down by an avalanche.

The Last Run is the epic tale of the wreck of the oldest registered fishing schooner in Alaska, a hellish Arctic tempest, and the three teams of aviators in helicopters who withstood 140-mph gusts and hovered alongside waves that were ten stories high. But what makes this more than a true-life page-turner is its portrait of untamed Alaska and the unflappable spirit of people who forge a different kind of life on America's last frontier, the "end of the roaders" who are drawn to, or flee to, Alaska to seek a final destiny.

From abandoned structures that have long ceased to take you anywhere to today's feats of engineering, Bridges is a pictorial celebration of 150 suspension bridges, iron bridges, stone bridges, aqueducts, viaducts, railway bridges, footbridges and rope bridges. Organised in sections such as abandoned bridges, classic bridges and superstructures, the book contains an immense range of wooden, stone, iron, steel and concrete bridges. There are tiny village bridges and vast bridges, narrow bridges and motorway-wide bridges, bridges that act as dams and bridges that support buildings, covered bridges, famous bridges and little-known gems. From San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge to the 21st century Millau Viaduct in France - the tallest bridge in the world, from the Roman aqueduct in Segovia, Spain, to farmers still building bamboo bridges, the book draws examples from all over the world. Ranging from the Rocky Mountains to Siberia and Iran, a picture emerges of not only how new technologies have made it possible for bridges to be built, but also how bridges have themselves been catalysts for social change. And when they have been abandoned, such as in former gold rush towns, these bridges tell their own stories of how the world moves on. Presented in a landscape format and with 150 outstanding colour photographs, Bridges is a stunning collection of images.
