Hardback, good condition
This is a photographic album of the London and South Western Railway – subsequently part of the Southern Region – in the days of steam, including the Atlantic Coast Express services and the lines of the “withered arm”, compared with the same sites today, seen in precisely-matched shots. The detailed captions pick out points of both local and railway interest, and provide an historical narrative of changes on the line and its land, and in its surroundings.
Hardback with dust jacket, 226 pages. Numerous black & white photographs with colour images and also track plans.
