Condition: Very Good+.

2nd Printing. [First: 1993, Thus] Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “This is the third volume of a trilogy looking at the last 15 years of British Rail. The period 1990-94 was no less eventful than the previous decade. Those five years saw many locomotive classes, including the 81s, 85s, 26s and 50s, become extinct, but at the same time the first Class 60 was accepted into traffic, Brush was awarded the Class 92 contract, and Manchester Metrolink opened. Speedlink ended, Barrow Hill and Stratford Diesel Repair Shop both closed, but new Class 165s, 323s, 59/2s and the first Eurostars redressed some balance. The final year, 1994, saw the opening of the Channel Tunnel. All these developments and more are chronicled in this volume, which uses a carefully chosen selection of superb pictures by some of the country’s leading photographers to record the end of an important railway era.”
