Bristol Railways 1978-1990 (Totem)

Back Order

A hardback album of colour photographs from the Arthur Turner collection featuring railways in and around the city of Bristol in the later years of British Rail between 1978 and 1990. Bristol has always been an important railway city; the original westerly terminus of the Great Western Railway, routes were soon added south and west into Devon and Cornwall, north and west to Gloucester and Wales, together with numerous branch and harbour lines serving industry and the docks.

Much of Bristol’s extensive railway network, junctions and yards were still intact in the period covered and author Colin Scott-Morton has assembled a varied and interesting selection of views from the post-steam era for this album.

Bristol Railways 1978-1990 includes images of the then-new HST sets, locomotive-hauled passenger trains and various freight services. Bristol’s main station at Temple Meads is featured, as are smaller stations on main and branch lines. Many lineside locations are also included, plus examples of shunting at docks and yards.

Extended captions accompany every image providing further information about the illustration and about Bristol’s railways in general. 80 pages. Hardback.
