London's Railways 1967 - 1977 (ePub)
A Snap Shot In Time
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.Buses magazine
