The drama of the Cumbrian countryside combined with some of the most powerful diesel and electric locomotives to be found anywhere in Britain.
Gordon Edgar’s photographs cover every aspect of diesel and electric traction in Cumbria, hauling both passenger and goods trains. The types, classes of locomotive and the operating companies represented are as varied as the landscape which ranges from the drama of the Fells to the windswept coastline and the industrial railway yards. Locations include the Carlisle to Maryport line, Workington, Mossband, the River Esk, Cummersdale, and the west coast line to Sellafield. Stunning photography and an extraordinarily varied landscape combined and captured in superb detail.
