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.
