In this informative book the author, Anthony Dawson, himself a steam engine-driver, shadows a crew as they go through all the procedures involved in the daily routine essential to prepare and run a steam engine. The engine in this instance is the GWR Pannier Tank No 7714, which runs on the Severn Valley Railway. After a brief run through the life of No 7714 he describes in great detail the day-to-day procedures required, interspersed with anecdotes from the crew. Also included are explanations on the GWR signalling and token system, required to facilitate single line running on the Severn Valley Railway. Well illustrated with mainly colour photographs and diagrams. 96 pages.
