The Last Years of North West Steam contains over 250 stunning
colour and black and white pictures that document the steam era
drawing to a close in North West England. The area is taken as
Crewe to Chester in the south and Carlisle in the north, visiting
places in between such as Manchester, Liverpool, Stockport,
Warrington, Wigan, Southport, Bolton, Bury, Preston, Blackburn,
Burnley, Blackpool, Fleetwood, Lancaster and Carnforth. Beautiful
scenes have been captured across the area by a number of
highly-skilled amateur photographers. The images feature
locomotives at stations, sheds, industrial sites and charming
countryside locations. A good portion of the book features rare
colour pictures and these are complemented by high-quality black
and white photographs. This collection features many of the
locomotive classes employed in the area, such as Stanier's
Pacifics, Class Five and `Jubilee' 4-6-0s and 8F Class 2-8-0s,
Hughes 2-6-0s, Fowler `Royal Scot' and `Patriot' 4-6-0s and 4F
0-6-0s. BR Standard Classes supplement these, whilst ex-London
& North Western Railway 0-8-0s are also included, as are
engines built for the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway and the
Great Central Railway. `Foreign' locomotives from the London &
North Eastern Railway and Great Western Railway further illustrate
the diversity of the motive power scene. The images are accompanied
by informative captions, describing the locomotives, the scene and
other interesting details.
