Presented in this album of Peter Gater's splendid photographs - many of which have never been published before - are representatives of most main line BR diesel-electric locomotive types found in England.
Classes 20, 25, 31, 37, 40, 45, 46, 47, 50, 56, 58 and 60 all feature plus several DMU types and a few steam specials for good measure!
So immerse yourself in a nostalgic look back at how the British Rail network around the Derbyshire Peak District looked from the mid-1970s to the early 1990s.
