Railways of South West Scotland: Two Generations of Photography (Key)

Back Order

Illustrated with over 180 photographs, this book presents two generations of railway photography around the South West of Scotland.

The two 20-year periods of 1960–80 and 2001–21 were chosen because the former covers the changeover years from steam to diesel, and the latter covers privatisation, electrification, and a reawakening of the rail network.

Photographs from each period are arranged in chapters, each covering a line in the area:

  • Glasgow to Barassie
  • Glasgow to Mauchline
  • Kilmarnock to Mauchline via Ayr
  • Ayr to Stranraer including the Port Road
  • Mauchline to Gretna

Each chapter includes a short history of the line, along with map and a series of photographs taken during each 20-year period covered in this book. Photographs are each accompanied by a caption. 96 pages.
