From 1972 onwards, Andy Sparks sought to capture the different scenes unfolding on the railways of Britain. With his camera at the ready, he travelled wherever and whenever he could, amassing an impressive portfolio of over 1,000 images. The 1970s and '80s was truly an era of change, of decay and dereliction gradually giving way to the onset of new order and organisation. British Rail Scene Remembered recreates the atmosphere of this gritty and distinct period, documenting the people, infrastructure, activities, trains and locomotives of this time.

Author Biography

ANDY SPARKS spent his teenage years avidly photographing the British railway scene. The costs of developing his negatives eventually forced him to stop his hobby, but he later discovered how popular his pictures were and began writing articles and books to showcase his images. He is a chartered surveyor and lives in Manchester. This is his fourth book for The History Press.
