The evolution of the present electrified branch to Hertford East through the steam era is illustrated in detail. The two lines from Hatfield suffered a steady decline in rural surroundings. The long country branch to Buntingford had a charm of its own and lasted into the diesel period to be photographed thoroughly, as seen herein.
