Introduced in 1966, Rail blue was the livery applied to all forms of BR diesel and electric traction and carriage stock until sectorisation in the mid-1980s and as such was to dominate Britain's main-line railways for almost two decades. By the end of steam in August 1968 increasing numbers of locomotives, multiple-units and coaches were appearing in the new livery, so much so that the final steam specials operated in August 1968 included blue-and-grey coaching stock. For the modeller, the Rail-blue era has its attractions in that it straddles the period of the late 1960s when steam and green diesels predominated through to the era of sectorisation in the mid-1980s. Moreover, although not all classes of first-generation of diesel and electric locomotives and rolling stock survived to be repainted in blue, there were odd examples of most classes repainted. This new book is a companion to Paul Shannon's "Blue Diesel Days", which was published in the autumn of 2007. It includes over 200 colour images portraying the operation of blue-liveried locomotives and rolling stock throughout the BR network along with detailed captions and informative linking narrative.
