Over the years the county has seen many different types of freight, including coal, cement, petroleum, Speedlink, nuclear flasks and steel.

Locomotive liveries included are from the BR Blue era, Railfreight sectorisation and today's privatised freight companies.

The book also includes some images from other Hampshire photographers.
