Steam on Britain's railways ended in 1968 - and the fifty years since has been a period of controversy and debate; has it been a time of progress and development, or under investment and political meddling? Some would say that Beeching's cuts led to an era of corporate monotony, ...whereas others would claim that the last half a century has witnessed remarkable technological advancements, with innovations like the HST 125 and Crossrail. Taking an often controversial viewpoint, and utilising a wealth of images, Mark Lee Inman explores the last half a century on our railways, considering whether it really has been a period of progress.
