'D' For Diesels : 8 (Booklaw)
This volume mainly features the photos of Gavin Morrison and covers the whole range of BR diesels from lowly shunters to huge main line locomotives. The photos are mainly taken in the 1960s and show a rail network and indeed a Britain before the ravages of standardisation and corporate identities.
Maybe everything was all a bit simpler and more innocent back then but nostalgia, like everything else, is not like it used to be.
