DIESELS in the LANDSCAPE
A range of first generation diesel multiple units and loco-hauled trains pictured in a wide variety of landscapes across the British Rail network from the Scottish Highlands to the Cornish Coast. The views were taken over forty years ago when green and maroon was changing to blue and grey. Certain local lines had yet to close and many stations on lines that are still open had their original buildings at the time.
Settings vary from the rocky Cumbrian Coast to the bracing Lincolnshire seaside and the upper slopes of the Pennines to the chalk downs of Dorset. In Scotland there are scenes from Inverness and the West Highlands to doomed branches in Fife and the much lamented Waverley Route. Welsh mining valleys provide a contrast with historic Pembroke while broad horizons are common to the Cambrian Coast line and the beautiful Border Country.
There are trains at country termini and big city stations while others wait alongside architectural gems or pause at wayside halts. From farms to forests and moors to mountains, there is nowhere as varied as Britain, so sample these scenic delights by discovering Diesels in the Landscape.
