British Rail Scene; The 1970s and early 1980s in photographs.

This soft back book is the third in the author's series, and kept me enthralled throughout. Not least because it was in an era I knew very well. Such nostalgia!

Well written and accurate captions from the time, with more than just an emphasis on the motive power, but on the whole changing scene. All photos in B&W, but that somehow adds to the feel of the book.

Very well recommended to those active in that era.

(A further collection of photographs on the same theme is due to be published in April 2018; Amazon and Wordery already taking pre orders)
