1960s Lancashire Steam in Colour
The 1960s was a decade of great change on British Railways as it went through the changeover from steam to diesel and electric traction. Steam Passenger Railways started and finished in Lancashire where in 1829 the first Passenger service from Liverpool to Manchester ran, and in early August 1968 the last British Railways Steam hauled services finished. Many pictures are taken in locations that have changed beyond all recognition, or have disappeared altogether. With his superb collection of rare and unpublished colour photographs, George Woods shows steam in action in a wide variety of locations in the picturesque North West, from the open moors of Westmorland to the urbanity of Lancashire.
