This book follows the course of the renowned Atlantic Coast Express, which ran from London Waterloo to destinations on the north coast of Devon and Cornwall, including Ilfracombe, Bude and Padstow. Drawing from his vast photographic collection, railway photographer and historian Bernard Mills provides a selection of colour images from the entire course of the route across this pair of books.These date back as far as the mid-1960s and depict a diverse selection of diesel traction, including iconic diesel-hydraulic classes as well as more recent types such as Classes 33, 47 and 50. First generation diesel multiple units also feature in this second volume, operating on north Devon and Cornwall's branch lines. Through very detailed captions and some personal anecdotes from his lengthy career with British Rail, the author outlines the history of the route with a focus on the 1960s to the 1990s, when diesel-hauled trains were the order of the day. 96 pages.
