This book is the first of a planned series of International Railway Memories titles from the publishers of Locomotives International magazine. Using archive colour photographs from the collection of the renowned railway photographer WJK Davies, held in the collection of the Narrow Gauge Railway Society, the reader is taken on a journey along the various types of railway to be seen in France. The ‘main line' services of the SNCF, secondary lines of both standard and narrow gauges, and the mountain lines of the Alps all feature within the pages of this evocative photographic memoir of the transition from steam to diesel on the railways of France. The reader is invited to sit back, enjoy the images, and savour the atmosphere!
