by Roger Geach

This  book takes the reader on a photographic journey on the Cornish railway main line from Plymouth to Penzance as seen through the camera lens of the author and friends.

All the existing main stations en route are illustrated in colour, along with some of the major infrastructure, such as some of the splendid viaducts.

The photographs date from the late 1960s through to the present, with the majority taken in the 1970s and 1980s.

The huge variety of regular diesel motive power is shown together with a few steam hauled specials that have run in the county since 1985. Regular motive power from the 1970s, including the popular diesel hydraulic westerns, are shown working both passenger and freight traffic. The regular diesel electrics are also illustrated as well as some rare visitors to the county.

This book should be of interest to anyone who likes the railways of Cornwall. It should also appeal to modellers who wish to study train consist and station views from the past, and local historians.
