Softback- Britain's Declining Secondary Railways Through the


This is an evocative selection of high quality colour views, each recaptures the lost age of Britain's branch lines and secondary railways, of which so many were axed following implementation of the 'Beeching Report' during the 1960s. Most importantly, the previously unpublished views in this book are the work of one man, Blake Paterson, a professional railwayman, who was also an outstanding photographer who some forty-five years ago was determined to record as much of the passing railway scene as possible. He set himself demanding schedules and would often travel vast distances to reach the more remote comers of the rail network. This book is a unique record of one man's railway portraits, featuring a wealth of locations, steam and diesel locomotives, DMUs, stations and station buildings, halts, signals, gas lamps, infrastructure, staff and passengers. His photographs provide a perfect pictorial record of so many of the lost splendours of Britain's rail network. This is the softback version of this book.
