5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book of photographs and recollections., 4 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Life on the Lines: A Railwayman's Album (Hardcover)
Richard Hardy carried a camera with him throughout his long railway career. Many of the images are of the fellow railwaymen he worked with at various locations. Each group of images has a few paragraphs about the people and places, and you can detect a real feeling for the comradeship amongst the ordinary workers who kept our railways running from the 1940's up to the end of steam.

The book is divided into eight chapters: Early Days 1924-40. Wartime 1939-1945 Doncaster Works and Running Sheds. Wartime 1939-1945 Footplate Staff. East Anglia and Woodford Halse 1946-1952. Stewarts Lane and Stratford 1952-1962. SNCF Experience on Nord and Est Regions 1958-1971. Traffic and Divisional Management 1963- 1973. and finally The Years Before and After Retirement 1973 onwards.
This book is a delightful read, and is a useful accompaniment to Mr Hardy's book "Steam in the Blood" if you are fortunate enough to own a copy!
