Steam Journeys From Bristol

This is your chance to experience one of the best railway photograph archives in Britain. Join railways author Rex Conway on a tour of main line journeys from Bristol, superbly illustrated by photographs which were captured during his countless expeditions around the country during the twilight years of steam in the late 1950s and 1960s. Rex worked all his life as a professional photographer, and his hobby was railways, so the two came together and resulted in thousands of high quality photographs. The steam engines of that era are captured in all their glory and you can also enjoy a rich variety of station views for those who take pleasure in railway architecture.

Complemented by modern film, this nostalgic journey begins at Temple Meads, where Rex remembers watching trains as a young child in the early years of the Second World War. It also includes visits to Mangotsfield, Patchway, Lawrence Hill, Sydney Gardens in Bath, Gloucester, Patchway, Lawrence Hill, and the Steam Museum in Swindon.
