Images of Wiltshire Railways

Regular price £14.00
Another book in this popular and growing series featuring photographs from the collection of Maurice Dart, Cornwall-based photographer and authority onWestcountry railways. This volume covers the period from the earliest days of photography through to the end of the age of steam on railways in Wiltshire. Here are rare photographs, many of them taken by the author, of main line locomotives and private and military lines, many of which no longer exist. Each is accompanied by the author’s own text, unique reminiscences of the locomotives that once ran on Wiltshire’s extensive rail system.

Now in his eighties, from a boy Maurice Dart has travelled throughout much of Southern Britain armed with a camera, taking photographs of all things railway. His collection, now numbering many thousands of images, has been the source of many small publications and has been used in countless magazines and journals.
