The Western Way: Western Steam in the Sixties (Irwell)

Back Order

Railway photographer Terence Dority has put together this collection of his photos of steam traction from across the Western Region in the last few years of main line steam in the 1960s.

The book is divided into two parts, part 1 covering ex-GWR tender locos and part 2 ex-GWR tank locos. Part 1 is split into express passenger, local passenger and freight trains, locos on shed, and excursion trains and enthusiast specials. Part 2 is split into Saddle Tanks, Pannier Tanks and Side Tanks. Each photo has a detailed caption including the date of withdrawal of the loco illustrated and, in the case of preserved locos, details of its present-day whereabouts. The collection includes photos from London Paddington, Stratford-upon-Avon, Birmingham Snow Hill, and several locations in South Wales among many others.

Hardback. 128 pages. Approximately 130 colour photos.
