Britain's Railways Series, Volume 3: Cornish Railways - Saltash to St Austell


Softback, 96 pages, Colour photographs

This, the first of two volumes covering the railways of Cornwall, follows the railway through the changing landscapes of the county. It takes the reader from the rich farmland west of St Germans, through the unique Glynn Valley down to Bodmin Road and the freight area of Lostwithiel & Par before reaching clay country on the way to the final destination of St Austell. In addition, the branch lines of Looe, Carne Point at Fowey, and Newquay are also explored.

Lavishly illustrated with 180 full-colour illustrations, many set in glorious countryside, this book shows a variety of locomotives. Service trains dominate the images, though there are many charter trains featured, some with exotic traction for the far south west. The photographs capture the changing landscape, from the short days of winter with piercing low sunlight, to the long days of high summer when the upside of the Cornish mainline is lit, allowing a different perspective, capturing not just the trains, but the beautiful hills, rivers and coastline in the Duchy.
