Overview

The Rail Blue color scheme dominated Britain's railways for almost twenty years and was considered somewhat drab and lifeless, especially when compared with the colorful variety of livery styles that had appeared on many of the new diesel and electric locomotive types since their introduction in the 1950s and 1960s. However, it is now clear that what the fleet may have lacked in color, it certainly made up for in variety, as during those “blue years” and compared to today, a host of different classes were to be witnessed plying their trade all over the country on a wide range of freight, passenger, and parcels workings. This latest volume in the BR Blue series, compiled by Gordon Wright, concentrates on the diesel classes within the Type 4 power range. All of the above helps to create a fitting celebration of a time that, in retrospect, is seen to be one of the most interesting and enjoyable on Britain's railways.
