Synopsis

Along Lost Lines by Paul Atterbury

Rich in romance and nostalgia, this fascinating book documents all the lost and forgotten aspects of British railways, including timetables, stations, tunnels, staff and trains. It focuses on the 10,000 miles of lines closed in Britain since the 1950s, bringing to life the glorious story of train travel as it used to be. Images of the railways' active past and pieces of ephemera capture British rural lines. Like previous books in the series, Along Lost Lines takes a very visual approach to the subject matter by highlighting the places and features that best tell the story, through stunning images and fascinating visual detail.
