Diesels Around South East Wales (Mainline & Maritime)

Back Order

A collection of colour photographs illustrating the changing diesel scene around South East Wales from the 1960s to the beginning of the 2020s. The book begins with a small selection of images from the 1960s, including some of the diesel hydraulic classes built for the Western Region of British Rail as well as more ubiqitous types such as Class 37s, 47s and multiple units.

The corporate blue era of the 1970s is followed by the small-scale introduction of new liveries following sectorisation in the 1980s and the more colourful and extreme liveries of the privatisation era.

Most illustrations feature diesel locomotives, however some multiple units are also featured. Locations include Newport, Rhymney and the Welsh Valley lines from Cardiff.

Most photographs are presented in one-per-page format and are accompanied by descriptive extended captions. Diesels Around South East Wales gives the reader a good overview and potted history of how diesel traction has evolved in South Wales. Hardback. 96 pages.
