The Lines Behind the Front


A photographic record of ‘The Railways in Support of the British Expeditionary Forces in the Great War’, this is just that, showing everything from the train ferry services to ambulance trains, and everything in between.

It includes many shots of British railway locomotives in France, Egypt and Palestine, plus French, Belgian and Dutch locomotives operated by the ROD, and locomotives from North America.

If you are interested in the story of the services rendered by the railways during the Great War, this is a book you really should have.

The accent in on the standard gauge, but narrow gauge operations are also included. 180 pages, around 300 superb B&W photos and a map. Hardbound.
