‘Cornwall’ Transition from Steam. RC Riley Archive Vol 6


Product Information


Cornwall, individualistic in its landscapes and people, was one of Dick Riley’s favourite photographic locations. From the mid-1950s until the early 1960s, several times he made the long journey by road from south London to record operations in this most remote corner of the Great Western’s English network. In so doing he captured steam’s closing years and the arrival of the first diesel-hydraulics, in themselves a further manifestation of BR Western’s determination to retain a spirit of independence.

 This album surveys familiar types of locomotive and rolling stock yet highlights how their composition and operations were uniquely fashioned to meet the particular challenges presented by the Royal Duchy.
