Anglo-Scottish Sleepers

Availability: Out of stock

For over one hundred years there have been sleeper trains running to a variety of destinations around the British Isles. The longest running services are those between England and Scotland, which started in 1873.

The Scottish sleeper services, now branded as the Caledonian Sleeper and currently operated by Serco, are due to have seventy-five brand new MK 5 carriages introduced into service in the spring of 2018 that will create a new level of hotel-style service.

Illustrated throughout, David Meara tells the fascinating story of these icons of Britain’s railways, offering a history of the service, including the motorail operation, as well as stories and anecdotes from those who use the sleepers – passengers, attendants, drivers and operational staff. Meara truly captures the essence of what is still one of the most civilised ways of travelling long distances in this country.
