Railways and Recollections

1980

by Chris Harris
Publication Date: 24/07/2014
 
The aim of this series is to appeal to readers of all ages, perhaps for different reasons...In this volume: We travel back to the year 1980...Zimbabwe gains Independence Seige at the Iranian Embassy Morris Ital launched Sixpence withdrawn Major fire at Alexandra Palace 'The ladies not for turning' speach Michael Foot elected Labour Leader John Lennon shot in New York For the younger reader within this series there are wonderful pictures of trains, real trains. There will, for example, be tank engines, steam engines, electric trains and multiple units and many more varieties besides! Some will be recognised from train sets, model railways and books, while others will be seen for the first time. For the older reader the books are designed to build into a collection placing the railway in the context of key events thus providing an historical perspective of travel in times past. For those old enough to remember the years depicted, the series will, we hope, provide reminders for many of school days, time perhaps spent train-spotting, shed bashing and generally gricing!
