Railway Styles in Building By Michael Bowers Photos by Patrick Watters Dust Jacket 1975 FIRST edition 93 Pages
A century and a half of railway building has produced a fascinating variety of structures. Some were great works of architecture or engineering; some were remarkably eccentric. Most were simple buildings containing strong local influences. Even several generations of standardisation could not eliminate the effects of local interest and regional character.
When steam disappeared and the most evocative rolling stock was taken out of service, the essence of 'the railways' passed to its buildings, many of which span more than 100 years of railway history. It is from these buildings that the present-day traveller receives his impressions of a railway style. This book is a study of those impressions and of the styles which have created them.
Over 100 new photographs, by Patrick Watters, have been used in the compilation of the book. These pictures range through station buildings, signal boxes, level crossings, bridges and viaducts in locations throughout England and Wales. Six distinct geographical regions are depicted in colour and black-and-white, many of the photographs showing details of design and architecture which are rarely seen in print.

All pictures are of the actual item.  If this is a railroad item, this material is obsolete and no longer in use by the railroad.  Please email with questions.
