Britain's Railways in the 1980s
The 1980s was a decade of change for Britain's railways. It began with an expectation of continuing decline but ended with rapidly growing passenger numbers. The 1970s world of corporate blue was gradually replaced with more striking liveries and the industry was being prepared for privatisation.
The heritage movement also saw rapid expansion and many people found a renewed interest in the railway scene due to the GW150 celebrations in 1985. All of these changes are charted year by year in this eagerly awaited fourth title in this lavishly illustrated series.
