Think of any railway, but the Great Western Region in particular, and thoughts will invariably turn to trains like the ‘Cornish Riviera’ or ‘Cheltenham Flyer’.
But these were only a small part of the railways scenem with the majority of services made up of more freight.
In this book, respected Great Western and Western Region author Jeremy Clements has cast aside the prestige workings and instead concentrates on everything from parcels, through coal and milk, to freight train banking.
Over 120 images of renowned photographers, Dick Riley and Peter Gray, make up what is an excellent example of Non-Passenger workings.
Most of the former Western Region network is featured, reproduced on quality art paper and with detailed and informative captions.
