Following the success of ‘The Atmospheric Western’ featuring the stunning photography of George Heiron, compiler Leslie Price has delved further into the Heiron archive to present this portrayal of George’s work on the Midland lines from Bristol north – together with a further smattering of Western Region views. Proponents of quality photographs will be well aware of how George Heiron was a master of photographic composition, the train – or engine – just part of the overall image and as such we are treated to a record of the period in question; the 1950s and early 1960s.

    Once in a while, a book comes along that simply stands out from the rest. This is an exquisite publication with wonderful photographs and equally well written captions. A must for anyone’s collection.

    I have been an admirer of George Heiron’s work for many years and rate him as one of the very best railway photographers of his generation, along with the likes of Ivo Peters, Eric Treacy and Derek Cross. However, unlike many of his contemporaries George had a particular knack of superbly capturing a train as part of the overall context of its surroundings. He was also very adept at portraying the human side of railway operation.

    This book features 175 of George’s photos of London Midland and Western Region trains during the 1950s and 1960s and has been excellently complied by Leslie Price. The photo printing quality is superb, and the supporting captions are highly detailed and informative. Highly recommended.
