Back Order

By John Jennison. The first book in a series which aims to use top quality archive black & white photographs, reproduced at the largest possible one-per-page size to celebrate some of the best-loved steam classes. The images are presented in landscape format and are backed up by comprehensive captions describing the subject in detail.

This first volume features the ever-popular Stanier Coronation Pacifics built for the London Midland & Scottish Railway. The emphasis throughout is on the engines in service and the book has been arranged in chapters in chronological order starting with the four main variations of the class as built, followed by the post-war de-streamlined engines.

The final three chapters show the Coronations at work in the 1950s and 1960s on each of the principal routes where they were used, ending with the final few months of 1964. All locomotives in the class are illustrated at least once.

A Celebration of LMS Coronation Pacifics uses photographs from some of the leading collections and notable individual photographers, including some from professional railwayman with access to locations not available to other photographers. 128 pages. Hardback. A4 lansdscape format.
