This lovingly-produced pictorial book covers London's railways from 1967 to 1977, showing the transition from steam to diesel and electric traction. Accompanied by a very readable narrative, telling tales of the authors adventures during his many trips around the London railway network, the volume encapsulates a fascinating period of time in Britain. During these ten years a great deal of change took place, not only with railways and transport, but also socially and economically in the wider world. Jim Blake eloquently describes all of these changes, whilst also looking in detail at the capital's transport scene of the period.

As seen in Buses magazine, this book really does offer a snapshot in time, and is a must read for all vintage railway and transport enthusiasts alike.

About Jim Blake

JIM BLAKE was born in December 1947 and brought up in Islington, North London. As did most young lads then, he soon developed an interest in railways, but also London's trams, trolleybuses and buses since North London's last two tram routes ran near his home, at the heart of London Transport's trolleybus system. His interest developed into transport photography in 1961 and he took over 100,000 photos before retiring his cameras in 2015. He still lives in North London today.
