Looking back at DMUs II The Outside Contractors

Recommended Posts

Looking back at DMUs II The Outside Contractors

The last volume in this highly collectable series deals with the British Railways 1st generation DMU & Railbus fleets supplied by the outside contractors including:

A.C. Cars, A.E.C., B.R.C.W., Bristol E.C.W., British United Traction, Cravens,

Gloucester Railway Carriage & Wagon Co., Metropolitan-Cammell,

Park Royal Vehicles Ltd., Pressed Steel,

and D. Wickham & Co. Ltd.

Dealing with each of their designs in turn we look at a number of differences, workings and the wide variety of liveries they have carried from introduction in the 1950s through to the 1990s with an emphasis upon the first three decades.

Fans of the Blue Pullmans can feast upon a wide selection of previously unseen views.

Throughout the 120 pages we have selected the very best colour photographs available to bring back the heyday of the DMU fleet.

Once again a limited print run of just 1000 copies so to avoid disappointment do not delay making your order.

Just a heads up after a few folk gave me a hard time as they missed out on copies of Diesels& Electrics to the Scrapyards, and Looking back at Shunters I & II as these were also shorter run publications, suggesting I did not give fair warning. Well this is to let you know the six latest titles on LMR Engine Sheds and DMUs have already sold half their print runs in their first fourteen days. So there we are, this will be the case of shorter print runs on all future titles, speaking of which the Eastern & North Eastern region's sheds will get the treatment next.
