Description

Although probably best known for his photographs of the railways of the West Country, Peter Gray travelled widely, especially in Europe, capturing images of a world which would soon be transformed by the relentless march of progress. When he visited Austria in the 1950s and 1960s the country remained unspoilt, and the railways played a vital role in transporting both freight and passengers. The narrow gauge and independent railways, with their frequently archaic and rustic charm, had often changed little in half a century. This book depicts the fascinating variety of steam traction that could be found on these lines before they changed beyond recognition, seen through the lens of an enthusiast who combined technical skill with an excellent eye for a photograph. For those who were fortunate enough to have visited Austria during a similar time span the images in this book will certainly bring back memories. For those who were unable to do so, it will simply show what they had missed.
