Within this book, a carefully selected range of color views paint a unique picture of these two fascinating networks, with scenes of rolling stock, depots, yards, tunnels, stations, signal boxes, as well as passengers. The authors have worked tirelessly to provide an excellent text, supplemented by this wonderful collection of images with detailed captions. Rail enthusiasts nationwide will be eager to glimpse the treasure trove of rare railway snapshots, while locals will enjoy the scenes of their beautiful city in a gentler time. A complete snapshot of a long-lost era, this is one not to be missed!
