Competing with private bus companies, British Railways offered cheap overnight services between St Pancras and Edinburgh and Marylebone and Glasgow from 1953. Never advertised in public timetables, the 'Starlight Specials' operated in the summer months, departing on Friday nights with return journeys 8 or 15 days later. This book examines the rise and fall of these popular services, which ran for ten years in the twilight of the steam era.
