Twilight of the Goods (Wild Swan)

Back Order

This book contains archive black & white photographs of goods wagons used on Britain’s railways in the years before the Beeching Report. Author Don Rowland set out to record the types of wagon in use at the time and this book presents around 80 of his photographs from the early 1960s. Photographs are arranged in chapters covering wagons built for each of the “Big Four” companies, as well as more recent post-1948 examples. Captions accompany each photograph and a short introduction to goods wagons is also included. 80 pages.
