The Scottish Region in the 1970s and 1980s
By (author) Andy Gibbs
Scotland has always been an attractive destination for rail enthusiasts – a place with picturesque scenery and a variety of traction scattered across the country, with the BR Blue era offering a wonderful juxtaposition between the grit of the hardworking locos and their more serene surroundings.With a variety of previously unpublished photographs capturing the Scottish rail scene during the 1970s and 1980s, Andy Gibbs offers up a wonderfully evocative and nostalgic look back on an interesting period of British railway history.
Born in Brighton and with transport in the blood, it wasn’t a surprise that after sixth-form Andy Gibbs ended up working for British Rail. After a varied career that spanned over thirty-seven years, he has now retired to York with his wife.
