A second book, partnering Cornish Railways featuring photographs from the collection of Maurice Dart, Cornwall-based photographer and authority on Westcountry railways. This volume covers the period from the earliest days of photography through to the end of the age of steam on railways in Plymouth and South Devon. Here are rare photographs, many of them taken by the author, of main line locomotives and private and military lines, many of which no longer exist. Each is accompanied by the author’s own text, unique reminiscences of the locomotives that once ran on Cornwall’s extensive rail system.

Now in his eighties, from a boy Maurice Dart has travelled throughout much of Southern Britain armed with a camera, taking photographs of all things railway. His collection, now numbering many thousands of images, has been the source of many small publications and has been used in countless magazines and journals.

Here for the first time is a comprehensive look at a major part of this unique collection – a book that will become a classic of Westcountry steam.

Maurice Dart lives in St Austell, Cornwall. His enthusiasm for railways has been with him since he first travelled with a camera back in the 1930s. His own photographs, each meticulously recorded with locations and dates, comprise the bulk of a collection to which he as added rare and important photographs from other sources.

ISBN 978 184114 514 3, hardback 210x297mm, 250 pages. Published June 2007.
