Description

The trains are carrying finished cars and car bodies on their way to the factory. By the 1960s industries were now relying more and more heavily on the roads for the transportation of goods but this photograph shows that even road transport was relying on the railways. By the 1960s many families had their own car. This meant that there was more traffic on the roads, causing gridlock. Fewer people were using public transport by this time.
