A book that looks back at the railways in their yesteryears has recently been published.

Drawing on images from the transport treasury collection, the traveller is taken on a journey north from Gerrards Cross, through High Wycombe to Princes Risborough while detouring en route to take in the branches to Maidenhead, Marlow, Aylesbury, Watlington and as far as Thame on the line to Oxford.

The hardback book named 'Rails around Wycombe and the Chilterns' has 85 illustrations and can be bought on the transport treasury's website.

The transport treasury, which is based in High Wycombe, has an archive that dates back to 1993 and counts over 500,000 negatives and transparencies over centuries of transport history.

Founded by former RAF squadron leaders, Barry and Janet Hoper, the treasury is currently owned by fellow enthusiasts, Robin and Sarah-Jane Fell who purchased it in 2017 to modernise the archive and make it widely accessible in the digital age.
