VETERANS IN STEAMCOLIN GARRATT Book Number: 86463 Product format: Paperback
A man with a remarkable talent and a romantic mission in life, Colin Garratt for many years has toured distant lands in search of the last remaining locomotives in use on the railway networks worldwide. His camera has captured them in clouds of steam and smoke, groaning their way up long gradients, spitting sparks and fire in the night and even rusting away, a long-forgotten in locomotive graveyards. The engines are portrayed here in glorious colour against the landscape and countryside on this incredible journey which begins in Britain, via Germany, Austria and Greece, on through Turkey and so to Syria in the Middle East. Seven countries are covered along with 35 different classes of locomotive in a glorious tapestry of charming and beautiful scenes. A delight for steam nostalgia fans. Softback, 7½" x 10¼, full page colour photos, 160pp. A reprint of the 1979 original publication (complete with author's long-haired and youthful photograph).
