Following the initiative by London & North Eastern Railway of hiring camp coaches during the summer of 1933, the GWR authorised the conversion of 19 old passenger coaches into their first camp coaches that November.  These coaches were modified to include kitchens and sleeping accommodation with the intention of sending them out to country stations around the system where the public would be able to hire them as holiday homes.  This scheme proved to be so successful during the GWR's first season in 1934, that the company continued to develop the concept.

Mike Fenton has undertaken an enormous amount of research to produce this book, meeting and getting to know many folk who took such holidays in this period, and the result is a warm and personal record of life, particularly in the 1930s.  The photographs are largely from personal collections, and contain a surprisingly large amount of detail and information of railway interest.
