Britain’s Railways Series, Volume 2
A richly illustrated portrait of locomotive-hauled trains over four decades, from the 1980s to the present day.
This highly illustrated look at locomotive-hauled trains over four decades features a wide variety of locomotive types on a great range of passenger duties. From one-off special workings to day-to-day operations, the whole range of BR and post-privatisation locomotive-hauled trains are described in detail. These trains range from the regular loco-hauled traffic from the early 1980s to current times, with all the popular types of diesel and electric locomotives shown, including Deltics, Westerns, Classes 20, 25, 31, 33, 37, 40, 56, 87 and many others. Each historic photograph, most of which have never been published before, is accompanied by an extensive caption, giving a comprehensive overview of timetabled loco-hauled travel in Britain over the last 40 years. They are a record of the many changes that have taken place as locomotive-hauled travel declined and, more recently, showed something of a resurgence.
