Product description

Paul Atterbury's Railway Collection brings the golden age of railways back to life through a nostalgic collection of Paul's private photographs, postcards and ephemera, all accompanied with informative and entertaining captions. In this entertaining collection Atterbury takes a personal perspective, charting his favourite journeys, stations and trains. Structured into the seven former BR regions, the book explores the whole of the British network from the 1950s to the 1980s. With entirely new and never seen before illustrative material, this collection is a fresh and fascinating celebration of railway nostalgia.
