Bristol is fortunate in having a particularly photogenic main-line station in Brunel’s magnificent Temple Meads, with a great variety of traction available both there and in the adjacent Bath Road diesel depot, now long gone. Liveries from the Rail Blue, Sectorisation and Privatisation eras are all illustrated in this book as well as preserved traction in historic liveries. From Peaks to Warships to Class 66s, and from slam-door DMUs to Sprinters and Voyagers, much of interest lies within. Hugh Llewelyn has lived in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire since the mid-1970s and has been taking railway photographs in the area during that period. This book is a collection of mainly colour, but with some black and white, photographs of modern and classic diesel traction that has been seen over the years on the railways in the urban and rural areas in and around Bristol and Bath.
