The second of two volumes covering the railways of the South East, this book focuses on Kent. It details a wide range of different trains including heavy aggregate, inter-regional passenger, test trains, the Orient Express, newspaper and mail trains, railtour excursions, engineers’ trains, weed killers and intermodal, steel, coal and nuclear flask traffic. An extensive range of locomotive classes in different liveries, many now consigned to history, are shown at work on main lines and branch lines in the ‘Garden of England’.

Over 180 colour photographs, the vast majority of which have never been published before, serve to illustrate the variety found in a corner of the country often regarded as a mainly multiple unit commuter carrying environment. The pictures are complemented by informative captions detailing each particular train and its working along with some of the infrastructure found along the routes covered.

About Andy Thomas

Andy Thomas initially lived the majority of his life in Kent and then hopped over the border into East Sussex. He was educated locally and went on to college to specialise in business studies before entering the finance department of a local council. He has spent his entire career to date in local government, working for two neighbouring borough councils, the last 30 years of it in an investigative role of revenue protection and latterly running the specialised section. His interest in railways began at a young age and has remained firmly as his prime hobby and interest through life. Photography, mainly of railways, has developed over time and he has had a few photographs in various railway magazines over the years.
