London Terminal Stations in the 1960s

Availability: In stock

Author: David Christie

In September 1962, the author started revisiting his boyhood trainspotting haunts at the London terminals – this time armed with a newly purchased camera loaded with colour slide film. A few days were thought adequate to record mainly steam at Kings Cross, Euston and Paddington but after many viewing sessions of the resulting slides over the winter, there was enthusiasm for more visits in 1963. So began a period over the next four years of travelling by train, via the London terminals, all over the rail system to seek out steam.

Although steam was the priority, diesels were not ignored – especially the early livery variants. The decade finished up with several Specials being recorded from Kings Cross, with LNER-liveried Flying Scotsman then the only standard-gauge steam loco allowed on BR. Kings Cross, Paddington, Euston, Marylebone, Waterloo and Victoria all appear in this collection, as well as the author’s ‘home' terminal, Liverpool Street.
