The Beaten Track illustrates the changing and somewhat tired faces of Britain’s railway network during the 1970-1985 era, when a variety of railway locations, locomotive types and some longstanding practices were disappearing. Through more than 280 images accompanied by lengthy well-researched captions, the reader is taken to a combination of well know and some very obscure and rarely photographed extremities of the rail network. These include some long-gone lines that gave access to industrial sites, such as the many collieries and steelworks that relied on railtransport. A wide range of traction is depicted, with plenty of main line locomotive classes, their industrial counterparts and a variety of multiple unit types highlighting how diverse the rolling stock of the 1970s and early 1980s was. All photographs are in colour and the majority have never been published before.
