Railway Talks

1967 saw the end of steam operation on the Southern Region. 

 

In the months leading up to July 1967, I made many visits to experience the final rites of steam operation in the south of England.

Fifty years on, I revisited many of the places I discovered then as well as to try to recreate certain trips and rail tours as close as the exact anniversary as possible. 

 

The objective was to replicate original photographs with present day ones. This shows how in many instances things have changed over half a century, but how surprisingly, how some things are just the same.

 

A demo of this talk can be seen here.
