Tracking Down Steam : A Personal Journey Through the Final Days of Steam

Tracking Down Steam : A Personal Journey Through the Final Days of Steam

Dr Peter Nicholson

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

August 11 1968 was the final day of scheduled BR steam, and this delightfully personal account takes a look at the period leading up to this date.

Featuring hundreds of previously unpublished photographs, this book covers the main-line steam locos of BR and the 'Big Four' - GWR, SR, LMS and LNER - and their predecessors, and follows them through many different environments, including trains on the main line, nationwide shed visits, locos under repair, antique steam-age rolling stock on the Isle of Wight, rare colour photos of long-gone museum pieces, privately-owned locos on the main line, memories of farewell train journeys, former main-line locos working in industry, locos awaiting cutting for scrap, and visits to the North-West as steam was being wound down.
