British Railways The First 25 Years Volume 4: The South West


The fourth volume in a series of books covering the first twenty-five years of British Railways, which will eventually cover the whole of Great Britain. This volume explores the main lines and branches in the South West of England from Taunton on the Western Region and Seaton Junction on the Southern Region, westwards through Somerset into Devon and then along the main lines from Exeter to Plymouth. The South Devon lines of the Western Region are included here with one branch that was effectively part of the main line, with 'Kings' working through on expresses to Torquay and 'Castles' down to Paignton and Kingswear. As with previous volumes, the atmospheric photographs cover steam, diesel and electric traction, express, freight and humble shunting engines. Everything from 'Kings' and 'Castles' to 'Battle of Britain' and 'West Country' classes, as well as their early diesel replacements, including the Western Region's short-lived Hydraulics.
