From the cover: Railway liveries are one of the most hotly-debated aspects of railway history. Probably no other area is so ridden with speculation, contradiction and a lack of reliable evidence or records.

The Ian Allan Railway Liveries series, researched and written by the late Brian Haresnape, has justly enjoyed a fine reputation for the quality and depth of its coverage of the subject, and due to popular demand the Publisher is pleased to be able to issue the series as one volume.

Railway Liveries 1923-1947< /i>deals in turn with each of the Big Four railway companies, and describes in detail the liveries that were used, not only on locomotives, but also on coaching stock, wagons, and even on buildings and railway-owned commercial road vehicles. The book is illustrated with over 300 photographs and numerous line drawings. In addition, 16 pages of contemporary colour are included to show how the liveries actually appeared in service.

This is a book not to be missed by any student of Britains railway liveries, and will appeal to enthusiast and modeller alike.
