Waterloo to the Atlantic Coast



Waterloo to the Atlantic Coast During the Diesel Era Part 1: Waterloo to Exeter Central

Prolific railway photographer and author, Bernard Mills, presents a wonderful selection of colour images dating back as far as the mid-1960s. A large variety of diesel-hydraulic locomotives feature, with many different examples from the Warship, Hymek and Western classes, and plenty of diesel-electric classes including some rare visitors.

Part one in this two-part series explores the former London & South Western Railway’s line from Waterloo to Exeter Central.

Through very detailed captions and some personal anecdotes from his lengthy career with British Rail, the author outlines the history of the route with a focus on the 1960s to the 1990s, when diesel-hauled trains were the order of the day. 96 pages. A4 size.
