    In Yarns, Tristan Jones tells how he began his writing career. He draws on his many adventures to evoke some of the memorable people he has met, and to describe some of the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world. He gives advice on everything from seamanship to dealing with local populations in remote places. Not to be missed is his marvelous evocation in the style of Conan Doyle as the mystery of the Mary Celeste is solved, or the Conrad-inspired story of a troubled steamship, Breakdown. Other yarns include the tale of an unlikely salvage operation in Ibiza, a strange rendezvous on the coast of Africa, and a coincidental meeting with one of America’s greatest cruising sailors.

    A stern-to-bow look at the most powerful aircraft carrier design of World War Two from the author of Bismarck and Tirpitz in the ShipCraft series.   The latest volume covers the hugely important American carrier of the Second World War. Built in larger numbers than any fleet carrier before or since, the Essex class can claim to be the US Navy’s most significant weapon in the defeat of Japan. Carrying up to 100 aircraft and capable of absorbing enormous punishment (not one was sunk), they spearheaded the Fast Carrier Task Forces for most of the Pacific War.   The heavily illustrated work contains everything a modeller needs to know about this prolific class.   “This book is well written and the text is supported by good sharp photos and illustrations. If your interest is World War II warships or ship modelling, this book should be in your library.”—PowerShips

    An in-depth look at the South London light rail tram system, from the author of Britain’s Last Mechanical Signalling. 
     
    Croydon Tramlink is a new history about the network linking Wimbledon with Croydon in South London. This is the first full history of this fascinating tramway, which is about to celebrate its twentieth anniversary of opening. The book looks at the political, economic, and social aspects of the network, as well as the mechanical history of the system. The tramway has been an important aspect in rejuvenating the Croydon area and improving transport links in an area lacking underground lines. 
     
    Praise for Croydon Tramlink 
     
    “In the very readable narrative we learn of the careful behind the scenes work undertaken to gain the support of the principal local authority and BR, and the lengthy process of gaining parliamentary approval and securing the necessary capital funding. We also hear of the obstructive tactics of the bus lobby which prevented construction of a more passenger-friendly interchange at New Addington, surely an indictment of public transport policy and planning at the time. The book is liberally illustrated with color images, many showing the original red and white and current blue, green and white liveries worn by the light rail vehicles.” —West Somerset Railway Association
