look at the world of British railways
through the eyes of bestselling author
and antiques expert Paul Atterbury.
Focusing on the human experience of
the railways - the drivers, firemen,
guards, station staff, signalmen,
engineers, caterers and, of course,
passengers - the book is a visual
feast, filled with fascinating archive
photographs of steam trains, other
locomotives, memorabilia and
evocative railway ephemera.
Built from archive photographs, old
postcards, badges and other railwayana,
the book is filled with fascinating
material that Atterbury has himself
collected from tireless searching at
postcard and antique fares and auction
sites. Many of the illustrations are
therefore original and previously
Covers railway life across the network
as well as showcasing local differences
in a series of regional sections.
