Synopsis

The Final Decade: 1960s Railway Scene Second Selection by Kevin Robertson. This book showcases more of Paul Hocquard’s masterful photography capturing the change from the Victorian railway to a modern network intended for a modern time. This revolution was to be the biggest change the railway had witnessed in over a century and would see the end of steam, the introduction of diesel and electric traction and the closure of literally thousands of miles of track.

Paul Hocquard had the foresight to seek out the unusual, the last survivors and at times the downright bizarre, recorded here as a permanent record of a landscape that would soon change beyond all recognition.
