Book Description

19 April 2012
Pat Avery has sourced a previously unpublished collection to present a wonderful tribute to that period now nearly half a century ago, and at the time shunned by the contemporary enthusiast who still preferred to chase steam. Grouped into 'regions' and their respective lines emanating from the London termini, most of the pioneer diesel classes are shown. Not in later BR blue, but instead in green, maroon, ochre, the first short lived blue livery, as well as the colours worn by some of the rarer one-off machines. Detailed captions compliment the book; certain to find a home amongst the current day enthusiast who yearns for the nostalgia of their childhood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait 16 Sep 2013
By Robin
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book had it's publishing date pushed back and back, but I am glad I waited for it to hit the shelves. It's an interesting collection of photographs of a range of the early diesels. For anyone interested in that insane period of building weird and wonderful locomotives, as well as those that became the standard diesel fleet of BR it's well worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attention all 60/70's spotters 14 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A brilliant look back and memory reminder of days spent as a school boy. A wide variety of liveries to see with great colour reproduction, certain to put a smile on your face as you are reminded of those long summer holidays which seemed to last forever. Fantastic pieces of machinery which in most cases have gone forever but are locked away in the memory archives.
