    Somehow, I managed to pick up second-hand copies of this, and the sequel, Swansea Terminal (probably because I used to live out that way).

    I never managed to get to the end of The Last Llanelli Train, but not for want of trying--the bookmark is still in it, about 3/4 of the way through! I finished and enjoyed Swansea Terminal though.

    The first one never really seemed to hook me in; perhaps the pacing was better in the second one, but I found it more readable.
