Synopsis

Sometimes you come across a lofty railway viaduct, marooned in the middle of a remote country landscape. Or a crumbling platform from some once-bustling junction buried under the buddleia. These are the ghosts of The Trains now Departed. Our lost legacy includes lines prematurely axed, often with colourful tales of their own, as well as marvels of locomotive engineering sent to the scrapyard, and grand termini felled by the wrecker’s ball. Then there are the lost delights of train travel, such as haute cuisine in the dining car and continental boat trains to romantic far-off places. The Trains now Departed tells the stories of some of the most fascinating lost railway lines of Britain, vividly evoking the glories of a bygone age.
