Past And Present
  • Berkshire and Hampshire
  • Past And Present No.21
  • British Railways Past and Present is a nationwide series of books featuring photographs of railway locations taken several decades ago and comparing them with the same scene today. Such is the current pace of change on our railway system that even a few years can reduce a busy and vibrant railway scene to a wasteland or housing estate - or conversley can bring electrification and up to the minute technology to an outdated, run down route.
  • The contrasts are often dramatic, while sometimes hardly anything has altered in 30 or 40 years. Whatever the change, the comparision of past and present will intrigue not only the railway enthusiast and historian, but also anyone interested in our recent history.
  • In this volume covering Berkshire and Hampshire are over 270 photographs, the majority taken by the author, featuring: The former LSWR and GWR main lines to the South West and West, secondary lines of the LSWR throughout Hampshire, SE&CR and LSWR lines to Reading, branch lines to Bordon, Lymington and Lambourn, the former Didoct, Newbury & Southampton line plus the Longmoor Military Railway.
