STEAM AT WORK: Preserved Industrial Locomotives
Bibliophile price: £9.00
A tribute in a colour photographic gallery to the so often forgotten types of steam trains ? the industrial locomotives. During the 1960s British Rail began the mass withdrawal of steam locomotives as it converted to diesel and electric traction, which led to preservation enthusiasts aiming to save as many as they could. Nowadays, heritage lines keep alive the names of companies no longer in business as people flock to see the large variety of locomotive types still in operation. Filled with beautiful colour and precisely engineered photos of locos, here are engines and their history and dates by such companies as Avonside, Borrows & Sons, Dubs, Kitson, Neilson & Reid, Robert Stephenson and Hawthorns, Beyer Peacock, RSH, Manning Wardle, Hunslet, Bagnall and Vulcan, Wigan Coal & Iron and Yorkshire Engine Company. Plus galas and demonstrations and heritage events where they are seen in action, in full steam today. Models photographed include the 1147, 1865 'Alexander', the fireless Heysham No.2, 2221, 2572 'Judy', 3058 'Alfred', 1827 and 1700 'Wissington' both climbing out of Foxfield Colliery, 0-6-0ST 3794 'Cumbria', green and gleaming and proud the 3694 'Whiston', 3792 'Waggoner' on the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, 1873 'Jessie', 686 'The Lady Armaghdale', 0-4-0ST 1749 'Fulstow' in Matlock, all among the stunning digital images. 126pp, colour illus. Landscape format.
