    LNER (Paperback)

    Paul Atterbury

    The London and North Eastern Railway, or LNER as it was familiarly known, was one of the Big Four companies that took control of Britain's railway network following the 'Grouping' in 1923. This network represented a challenging mixture of mainline and rural passenger routes, suburban services, and freight and industrial lines across the east coast of England and Scotland. Despite this challenge, the LNER became famous for its style, speed and efficiency, with record-breaking high-speed routes capturing the public's imagination, supported by iconic locomotives such as the Flying Scotsman and Mallard. Full of beautiful photographs, this is a perfect introduction to one of Britain's best-loved railway operators during the Age of Steam.

    A Century of Railway Travel (Hardback)

    Paul Atterbury

    From the Edwardian golden age of steam to the present, the railway has captured the hearts and imaginations of the British people like no other mode of travel. In wartime and peace, along major routes and minor, steam, diesel and electric trains have carried commuters to work, families to holiday destinations and provided the means to myriad other adventures - the train a constant presence in an ever-changing way of life. A Century of Railway Travel presents one hundred years of the British passenger's story, using striking full-page imagery with commentary from bestselling author Paul Atterbury. From the open platforms of provincial stations before the First World War to the modern throngs at Waterloo on Derby Day, and from compartments that separated rich from poor and male from female, to the rise to dominance of modern standard class, this book depicts the rich tapestry of progress and heritage that has been the last century of British train travel. The coloured card ticket in your hand, the rough feel of the upholstered seats, and the call of the whistle, the scenery begins to move across the carriage windows of one of Britain's great steam-trains: with full-page illustrations and text alive with insight and nostalgia, this is a passenger's history of train travel in the last century.

    The Railway Experience (Hardback)

    Paul Atterbury

    Britain is a country in love with its railway past. Nowhere else do the workhorses of the age of steam exert such a strong pull on us; in no other country is the nostalgia for the days when the railways extended to every corner of the kingdom so strong. Paul Atterbury - famous for chronicling our island railway story, and for jogging the happiest of memories with his careful curations of image, object and fact - here presents a superb set of photographs describing in pictures daily life on the railways in the twentieth century. With a strong emphasis on the steam age, Paul's photographs show the everyday life of the railway, from passenger and goods trains, to stations and staff, and the annual excitement of the seaside holiday.
