The Era of Rail Blue (Amberley)

Back Order

In the dying days of British steam, the British Rail Design Research Unit in the 1960s introduced a modern new blue livery for diesel and electric locomotive; blue and grey for coaching stock, blue for suburban stock, and the now iconic double-arrow symbol.

Having lived through this lost era, Mark Jamieson provides a nostalgic and affectionate record of British Rail during the rail blue years. Illustrated throughout and with detailed captions, this is a comprehensive account of when the livery ruled the rails. 96 pages.
