Britain is a country in love with its railway past. Nowhere else do the workhorses of the age of steam exert such a strong pull on us; in no other country is the nostalgia for the days when the railways extended to every corner of the kingdom so strong. Paul Atterbury - famous for chronicling our island railway story, and for jogging the happiest of memories with his careful curations of image, object and fact - here presents a superb set of photographs describing in pictures daily life on the railways in the 20th century. With a strong emphasis on the steam age, Paul's photographs show the everyday life of the railway, from passenger and goods trains, to stations and staff, and the annual excitement of the seaside holiday.
