No preservation shots just great colour archive photographs from the 1950s through to the early 1980s and their demise. Not to be missed.

The photographic talents of many contributors have been shown to the full advantage with two additional chapters to display some exceptional camerawork. We also recall the dark days of withdrawals and the scrapyard at swindon with many evocative shots to recall. Finally a lingering look back at the huge number of specials that ran behind Westerns in the 1970s.
