Reg Batten was a railway and transport photographer, who started taking pictures in the early 1930s, mostly on the Great Northern and Great Eastern sections of the L N E R.

He later started taking pictures elsewhere on the railway network, covering other companies, also looking at other forms of transport like traffic on the river Thames.

This is the first book of Reg Batten's work, covering his railway photography from the early 1930s, through wartime into the 1950s, and steam on into the preservation era. This volume not only covers locomotive types but also looks at locations and interesting features of the railway scene at that time.

About Malcolm Batten

Malcolm Batten is the son of Reg Batten, who was a well known railway and transport photographer, who lived in East London all his life and took photographs of local railways, transport and also extensive views of country scenes throughout the Home Counties and beyond.


The author spent his working life as a librarian, but has always had a great interest in his fathers' work and also in the history of transport, being a bus and railway photographer himself.


He is involved with the Epping Ongar Railway, where he arranges exhibitions for the railway about local and national railway history with colleague and neighbour Geoff Silcock.
