Illustrated with over 180 photographs, this book presents two generations of railway photography of the southwest of Scotland. The two 20-year periods of 1960–80 and 2001–21 were chosen because the former covers the changeover years from steam to diesel, and the latter covers privatisation, electrification, a range of very colourful trains and a reawakening of the rail network in the southwest after the downward trend during the last years of BR.

The book amply illustrates the lines from Glasgow to Gretna down the Ayrshire and Inverclyde coast to Stranraer, along with the former Glasgow and South Western line through Kilmarnock and Dumfries. In addition, many of the branches and minor routes are also catered for. Exploring the region through the decades, this book is an invaluable source of reference for railway enthusiasts interested in the railways of the southwest of Scotland.

About David Cross

David Cross is the son of the late Derek Cross, who was well known as a great railway photographer. David has had an interesting career in the shipping and container industry and also lived and worked abroad at times in his career and life. He often accompanied his father on railway photographic trips when he was very young and caught the railway bug, which has led to a life long passion for trains and railways. He lives in Essex, where he still pursues his great passion for railways and photography. This volume largely taken from his fathers' work is his latest offering.
