Back Order

A fascinating compilation of black & white photographs, taken from the Armstrong Railway Photographic Trust, which illustrate the events taking place in the sixties at scrapyards around the country. Author, David Dunn, has selected a range of images showing steam engines (and in some cases ships) waiting in breakers yards to be cut up.

The wide assortment of views covers steam engines from a variety of regions following withdrawal. Many of the photographs show condemned engines in the process of being cut up or dismantled, revealing a variety of components not normally in view; or reduced to rusting hulks lying abandoned as they wait to be destroyed. One interesting photograph shows three former GWR AEC streamlined railcars at Swindon!

The majority of the photographs in Graveyards of Steam: Private and Public Scrapyards During the Latter Days of Steam are previously unpublished and consist of three cover photographs in colour, along with 174 black & white photographs inside. 96 pages.
