Along Main Lines: The Great Trains, Stations and Routes of Britain's Railways

Along Main Lines: The Great Trains, Stations and Routes of Britain's Railways (Hardback, UK ed.)

By Atterbury, Paul

Along Main Lines is a celebration of railway nostalgia, focusing on the great main line routes and the glamorous trains that plied them. Lavishly illustrated throughout, Paul Atterbury celebrates the famous main line routes, big city stations, record-breaking locomotives and cele...brated express trains. Organised into routes, it covers all the main London termini and their principal routes as well as major intercity routes in other parts of Britain. Built from archive photographs, old postcards, badges and other railwayana, this book is filled with fascinating material that Atterbury has himself collected from tireless searching at postcard and antique fares and auction sites. Many of the illustrations are therefore original and previously unpublished.
