The Last Days of Steam in Gloucestershire A Second Selection

A Second Selection

Availability: Out of stock

Following on the success of the first The Last Days of Steam in Gloucestershire, here is a second superb collection of photographs depicting the railways of Gloucestershire during the revolutionary period of 1959 to 1966. At the beginning of this period, steam was still dominant, branch lines were still operating and stations and halts were prolific. By 1966 diesel power had usurped the steam locomotive, many of the branch lines were closed and only a small number of stations remained in daily use. The Last days of Steam in Gloucestershire: A Second Selection contains over 200 evocative and atmospheric photographs which capture the changing world of Gloucestershire's railways, including a section on Gloucester Docks. The book will provide a permanent record, of interest to railway buffs, social historians and anyone with an enthusiasm for the age of steam.
