The are some informative captions but the author apologies in the introduction for a lack of caption details in respect of many of the train workings covered which is such a pity as this can make for bland captions using the tried and test "An up express" or "van train working" to quote but two. With a little more research much of this detail could have been found even 30yrs after the event. In what is primarily a picture album there is a 50/50 split between good sharp images and some that appear quite frankly 'woolly' this may be as a result of printing methods or the original source image being either scanned from colour slides or prints. I hoped for something along the lines of the Ian Allan Landscape size series of books like "Scottish Diesels a Colour Portfolio" with large single size page images or as in the case of A4 format as here just two to a page. When it comes to quality of image and caption details you can't get better than a Michael Welch title published by Capital Transport, that is the bench mark for me so I find the layout in this title very disappointing.
The Chapter header pages are nearly 50% blank page albeit in BR Blue which struck me as a layout design feature winning over substance. The adjacent page however might have four small or heavily cropped images on it with some measuring 3.5" by 2.5" and the captions as well.Read more ›

A pretty comprehensive view of all the major diesel classes of the 1970s and 1980s, well illustrated with decent photographs.Published 18 months ago by Michael Deiton
This is a great book if you wish to look back at the BR era of the late 1970's/ early 1980's. The book covers the Uk regions in a simple page format. Read morePublished on 12 Mar. 2014 by vanhalen
