Western Steam in Devon and Cornwall

Regular price £12.50

The Great Western Railway promoted its holiday lines with enterprise and imagination, none more so than the routes to the south-west which somehow seemed to be everybody's favourite destination for a break at the seaside. The famous 'Cornish Riviera Express' restaurant car train between London and Penzance was easily the best-known on the route. After the Second World War, holidays with pay became the norm for the masses and this sparked a massive upsurge in holiday traffic. Using top quality images, this album looks back at the last years of steam on the former Great Western routes in Devon and Cornwall which retained much of their distinctive atmosphere well into the 1960s.

Hardback. 120 pages. Colour photographs throughout, all with extensive captions.
