The Somerset and Dorset in the Fifties Volume Two - 1955 - 1959

£5.99

Product description

Title: The Somerset and Dorset in the Fifties Volume two - 1955 - 1959

Author: Ivo Peters

Introduction:

Part one of "The Somerset and Dorset in the Fifties" covered the period from 1950 - 1954. Part two now takes us from 1955 - 1959. During these five years, traffic over the Somerset and Dorset, both passenger and freight, kept up well, and to the railway enthusiast's delight, the constantly changing variety in motive power continued unabated. In fact by the end of the 'fifties, the only member of the pre-nationalisation 'Big Four' railway companies not represented on the S & D was the L.N.E.R.

But in 1958 an event occurred which was to have fatal consequences for the Somerset and Dorset - in a reshuffle of regional boundaries the Western region gained a dominating control over the line. Initially there was little to show for the change, and no hint given of the fate that was to befall this enchanting line. 1959 dawned with the S & D still an important and busy line, but as the year drew to a close, how many would have believed that the Somerset & Dorset had less than seven more years to live?

The book is in good condition throughout.
