The Green Diesel Years BR 1950s and 1960s album



Description

A fine collection of colour photographs portraying a vast range of diesels in the green diesel era at work on Britain's railways

The 'green diesel era' between 1955 and the early 1970s, when diesel motive power was being introduced in large numbers on Britain's railway network, is today arguably one of the favourite historical periods for enthusiasts and modellers of diesel traction. Almost from the outset, BR adopted green as its livery for diesel locomotives and DMUs - with odd exceptions (most notably the ever-independent Western Region) - and, although a new livery of Rail Blue was launched in 1964, the green livery was in sporadic evidence until the mid 1970s.

This book contains over 180 colour photographs of a huge variety of BR diesel locomotives and DMUs throughout the country in this era, and the images depict a portrait of a railway in which the infrastructure had remained recognisable for decades before undergoing wholesale changes.

Today the diesel locomotives and DMUs in this book are as much part of our history as the background scenes of the railway portrayed, making this book an invaluable source of information for railway modellers as well as historians.

About Us

The Vale of Rheidol Railway (WelshRheilffordd Cwm Rheidol) is a 1ft 11 3/4 inches (603 mmnarrow gauge heritage railway that runs for 11 3?4 miles (18.9 km) between Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge in the county of Ceredigion, Wales.

Until 
privatisation, it was the sole steam-operated line on the nationalised British Rail network, steam traction having ceased in 1968 on all other parts of the system. Unlike some other preserved railways in the United Kingdom, the Vale of Rheidol Railway has never closed, with the exception of wartime and has operated a service for tourists through its life. The railway celebrated its centenary in 2002. 

The Railway is a charity, meaning the income it generates goes back into the railway, to aid in restoration and running of the steam locomotives. Buying through our online giftshop enables you to get the product you want but also donate to the railway and keep it alive.
