Almost since the beginning of photography railways have been a popular subject. This book draws together the work of more than 30 railway photographers, some of whom have become household names, such as Ivo Peters, Bishop Eric Treacy and H. Gordon Tidey. A few of the others required extensive detective work to find out anything of their background, although all those featured have left a legacy of fine and historically important railway photographs. A long vanished age is depicted through the cameras of the very cream of railway photographers and is a fitting tribute to their art. The photographs span over 75 years, from the end of the broad gauge to the demise of steam itself. A brief biographical note provides insight into each photographer, with about half a dozen photographs used to represent the work of each photographer.
