The West Coast Lines: BR Steam From Euston to Glasgow

Product no.: 978-1-78155-207-0


The two decades following the end of the Second World War was a period of great change in Britain. One of the most noticeable changes, apparent throughout the towns and countryside, was the switch from steam to diesel traction. It transformed the character of the railways, not only in the replacement of locomotives, but also in the enormous upheaval of infrastructure. Bill Reed’s photographs capture all of this.
