Abandoned tunnels, derelict stations, old trackbeds and much more; all are included in "Do Not Alight Here", an entertaining and informative book that guides the reader through London's many remaining disused Underground and main line railway structures.

Located on the north bank of the River Thames opposite Gravesend, with which there has been a ferry link for centuries, Tilbury Landing Stage is a fine vantage point for viewing shipping passing to and from upriver berths. Ever since it opened in 1930 it has been the port of London's main passenger terminal. For many years it was the farewell point for thousands of migrants leaving England for Australia. Later, as liner travel changed to cruising, it was regularly used by Soviet-owned passenger ships. To meet the new demands of cruising the passenger facility was upgraded and is now known as the London Cruise Terminal, handling a number of cruise ships each year. Geoff Lunn takes a photographic journey through the history of Tilbury Landing Stage, describing the passenger ships and various other ships that have berthed there and those that have passed close by.

**THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER** Magnus Walker is one of life's originals. Serial entrepreneur, fashion designer, TV presenter, motivational speaker and one of the world's most prolific Porsche collectors, the dreadlocked, tattooed hoarder of individual creativity is a very modern incarnation of success. Raised in the urban decay of Thatcher's Britain, Sheffield-born Magnus Walker left school with just two O levels and drifted for several years before buying a one-way ticket to America. Now, 30 years and three successful businesses later, by following his instincts, rejecting convention and pursuing his passions Magnus has succeeded against all the odds. Here, for the first time, is the full story of his journey from a Northern steel town to the bright lights of Hollywood, from a boy with little hope to an anti-establishment hero. Along the way we'll witness his potent combination of inspiration and graft, discover his motivations and his ambitions, and come to understand his philosophy and the keys to his success. Inspiring and exhilarating, URBAN OUTLAW is a compelling tale of succeeding through pure instinct and determination by a man who was brave enough to follow his own path.
The pair gathered little-known stories such as the tale of how the young Arthur and William Harley saw the curvaceous French performer Anna Held finish her vaudeville act by riding a motorcycle on to the stage. Could that have spurred the young men to build their first motorcycle? They also recount the tale about family friend Ole Evinrude, who Arthur Davidson liked to say, built his first outboard so he wouldn't have to row across the lake to woo his sweetheart. Complemented by photographs from the family archive, rare magazines, and even the Harley-Davidson archives, these personal glimpses provide an entertaining and revealing portrait of the men and women who created America's favourite motorcycle.

Since its introduction in 1998, the water-cooled Porsche 911 has earned a reputation as one of the world's greatest sports cars--equal to, if not better than, the legendary air-cooled 911 it replaced. The 911 is a true driver's car, and it offers its greatest driving rewards when properly maintained, tuned, and modified.

The range and variety of British railway stations is truly astonishing; from the tiny wayside halt made of corrugated iron to the magnificent stone-built city centre terminus. No less remarkable in their variety are the buildings devoted to the transport of goods, and indeed for most years of their existence this traffic was by far the most important to the railway companies. Subjects also covered are signal boxes and signalling, locomotive depots, bridges and viaducts and much else besides; in fact just about every aspect of the British railway scene. This book, focusing on the West Midlands, Wales and the South West, covers principally the areas of the London & North Western, the Great Western, the London & South Western railways and the various Welsh railway companies. Illustrated throughout with the author's original colour photographs, many of which are now historic, this book is sure to appeal as much to the general reader as to the railway modeller.
