  • Description
  • Reviews

Another book in this popular series, partnering Images of Cornish Railways, Images of Plymouth & South Devon Railways, Images of Exeter & East Devon Railways, Images ofWiltshire Railways and Images of Bristol, Somerset & Dorset Railways, featuring photographs from the collection of Maurice Dart, Cornwall-based photographer and authority on steam railways. This volume covers the period from the earliest days of photography through to the end of the age of steam on railways in the the county of Hampshire, and on the Isle of Wight.

Here are rare photographs, many of them taken by the author, of main line locomotives and private and industrial 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 the westcountry’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.

Maurice Dart was born in Plymouth and, apart from a period in Gibraltar, he has lived in Devon and Cornwall for all of his life. The interest in railways was bred into him almost from birth and has stayed with him. He was educated at Sutton High School, Plymouth followed by Plymouth & Devonport Technical College and worked as a chemist in the China Clay industry for thirty seven years. Through his work connections he gained an intimate knowledge of the Lee Moor Tramway and of China Clay railway operations by the main line railway companies. Following retirement he works as a volunteer on the Bodmin &Wenford Railway mainly in the shop or escorting visiting enthusiasts around the railway. He also acts as a guide for enthusiasts who wish to visit sidings that serve locations owned by Imerys Minerals.
