East of England Steam 1948-1963 (Great Northern)

Back Order

One of the first areas to see the end of steam was the East of England, some 120 years after the first steam locomotives ran in the region. Throughout this time, a rich history was developed with a wide variety of routes, locomotives and services offered.

This book examines the final years of steam in the East of England, between 1948 and 1963. Photographs cover locations in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Huntingdonshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. The area incorporates two main lines; the East Coast Main Line and the route from London to Norwich, as well as a dense network of rural lines, much of which has since closed.

East of England Steam 1948-1963 presents a selection of black & white photographs of locations around the region, covering a selection of the locations and locomotive classes of the period. Each photograph is accompanied by an extensive caption. Hardback. 160 pages.
