Britain's Railways in the 1970s  By David Hayes
Britain's Railways in the 1970s
By David Hayes
The 1970s was a unique period for Britain's railways. Steam had not long been replaced by diesel and WCML electrification was well underway. It was also a good time for the railway photographer - complex track layouts remained intact and freight traffic was plentiful. Well-known photographer David Hayes captures a flavour of this fascinating transition period. 96 Pages, 180 photographs, Softback.
