"The Lost Joy of Railways" will transport you back to the 1950s and 60s, reminding you not just of the trains but of personal accounts, journey logs, timetables and photographs. Divided into six regions of British railways, each chapter documents the favourite sections and engine sheds that were a magnet to the spotter. The book also includes records of trainspotting trips and the final days of steam, along with feature pages on famous railway photographers, schedules, works, scrapyards and essential clothing, equipment and survival kit for spotters. Each chapter also encompasses a section on the introduction of diesels throughout the system.
