BR Steam in Colour London to Aberdeen from the Bill Reed Collection Peter Tuffrey
This rare and evocative collection of colour photographs from the 1950s and ’60s was chosen from many hundreds of 35-mm colour slides taken by veteran railway photographer, Bill Reed, on and off the East Coast Main Line between London and Aberdeen. This was a pivotal moment in the history of locomotion; the archetypal steam engine, an emblem of Britain’s national character, was rapidly succumbing to new diesel-powered engineering. Paired with Peter Tuffrey’s impeccably researched captions, this collection of colour photographs is a fine tribute to the last days of steam.

The West Coast Lines: BR Steam From Euston to Glasgow From the Bill Reed Collection Peter Tuffrey
The two decades following the end of the Second World War was a period of great change in Britain. One of the most noticeable changes, apparent throughout the towns and countryside, was the switch from steam to diesel traction. It transformed the character of the railways, not only in the replacement of locomotives, but also in the enormous upheaval of infrastructure. Bill Reed’s photographs capture all of this.
