The Atmospheric Southern: The Classic Southern Region Collection (Transport Treasury)

1 In Stock

This book takes the reader on a journey around the Southern region, as viewed through the camera of 13 of the finest railway photographers of the period.

Starting at London's Victoria station, photographs illustrate a journey around Kent, Surrey and Sussex, before moving westwards to Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, the West of England and then back up the South Western main line to Waterloo, finally ending at Nine Elms shed just before the demise of steam in July 1967.

There is also an extended feature on the railways around Redhill – a strategically important railway crossroads. Mostly steam, the subject matter includes a few diesels and electrics, while the extended captions give details of so much more visible in the pictures.

Large format hardback. 160 pages.
