Diesels - OPC
- In The Capital
- This is the latest in the series of OPC pictorial books depicting diesel locomotives and multiple units at work throughout the British Rail system. Photographs range from the earliest days of diesel traction to the present day, and with the spread of electrification and the elimination of many diesel classes, much has changed during that period.
- The area covered by this volume extends approximately 30 miles out from the various Central London termini and a very wide variety of motive power and locations are included. Perhaps surprisingly, the London area has numerous scenic and photogenic locations where trains can be viewed.
- Finding such locations is not necessarily so easy, but the author has made a life-long study and photographic record of railways in and around London and knows of many unusual vantage points. For this title, Brian Beer has augmented his own photographic collection with the work of several other well known railway photographers. The reult is a most pleasing, as well as informative selection of views, all with detailed captions.
