In the late 1960s the author visited as many railway locations in South America as work, time and money permitted, and returned to the UK with over two thousand colour and monochrome photographic images which are now held by the Transport Treasury. The countries featured in this collection of 160 images are Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. Steam, diesel and electric traction from the UK, US, Japan, Germany and five other European countries are represented, as well as an innovative Argentine loco. In addition to captions packed with information for each image there are also brief histories of each railway and a summary of how it has tried to meet the challenges of the last half-century.
