Description
 
Rich in romance and nostalgia, this fascinating book takes the reader on an odyssey around Britain in pursuit of the lost railways.

This title 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.

It documents all the lost and forgotten aspects of railways, including timetabled journeys, stations, tunnels, staff and railway vehicles.

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 over 450 stunning images and fascinating visual detail.
