BR Blue: Scenes from the British Rail Corporate Image Era (Fonthill)

6 In Stock

A nostalgic trip back to the 1970s and 1980s, when British Rail’s corporate image and its Rail Blue livery dominated the nationalised railway system. Despite the blanket nature of that colour scheme, the period was actually characterised by the great variety of different types that could be seen on the railway at the time, as this volume testifies.

The book is divided into five main sections, each covering one of the regions of British Rail. Every chapter contains a selection of high quality colour images showing the multitude of locomotives and multiple units in service at the time, and the great variety of trains on which they were employed.

All the images are accompanied by detailed captions providing specific details of the featured subject. A unique photographic journey across the network during an era now looked upon with affection as a golden age. 96 pages.
