Britain's Lost Railways: A Commemoration of our finest railway architecture [9781781317198]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Contains removable facsimile memorabilia, including tickets, posters, timetables and maps.

The beautifully restored St Pancras Station is a magisterial example of Britain's finest Victorian architecture. Like the viaducts at Belah and Crumlin, cathedral-like stations such as Nottingham Victoria and spectacular railway hotels like Glasgow St Enoch's, it stands proud as testament to Britain's architectural heritage.

In this stunning book - which is presented in its own slipcase - John Minnis reveals Britain's finest railway architecture.

From the most cavernous engine sheds, like Old Oak Common, through the eccentric country halts on the Tollesbury line and the gantries of the Liverpool Overhead Railway, to the soaring viaducts of Belah and Cumlin, Britain's Lost Railways offers a sweeping celebration of our railway heritage. The selection of images and the removable facsimile memorabilia, including tickets, posters, timetables and maps, allows the reader to step into that past, serving as a testimony to an age of ingenuity and ambition when the pride we invested in our railways was reflected in the grandeur of the architecture we built for them.
