British Railways The First 25 Years Volume 7: London Western

Details

Unlike the previous central London volume in this series, which covered the complex multi-termini Southern Region lines, the Western Region featured only one terminus, Paddington, served by one large motive power depot. At nationalisation in 1948, the newly-formed Region took over responsibility for the West London line, which was an important artery for freight traffic between the four Regions of British Railways. The mix of pictures in this book illustrates, we hope, the unique character of the 'Western' in London, with a good balance between steam and diesel traction, and with a few gas turbines added in for good measure.
