Classic Diesel Years Cumbrian Coast
The Cumbrian Coast Line is a product of several historical routes of different companies that eventually linked to provide a coherent through route in more modern times. A central portion was threatened with closure under Beeching but somehow managed to survive. By the early 1980s, the line still carried a healthy mixture of freight, including oil, chemicals, nuclear flasks, coal and scrap metal. The images in the book show Classes 25 and 40, 31s, 47s and 60s. Locations include Arnside Station, Kents Bank, Carlisle, Dalston Goods Yard, Maryport, Siddick Junction, Workington, Harrington, Whitehaven Bransty, Whitehaven, Corkickly, Calder Hall, Sellafield, Drigg, Millom, Foxfield, Ulverston and more.
