abc British Railways Locomotives Winter 1964 (Crecy)

Back Order

A reprint of the Ian Allan Publishing abc Combined Volume for Winter 1964. This famous series contained lists of numbers of all the locomotives in service at time of publication and gave rise to the phenomenon of `loco-spotting’ in the 1940s.

This volume covers a period where serious inroads were being made into the fleets of every class of steam locomotive that remained in service as the progress towards diesel and electric power continued at a relentless pace. By late 1964, iconic classes such as the "King" class had already ceased operation and many more were to follow over the following years when essential repairs became due.

abc British Railways Locomotives Combined Volume Winter 1964 is divided into four separate sections, each covering a locomotive numbering series approximating to the former grouping companies. Diesel and electric multiple units is in service are also listed. The pages are reproduced exactly as in the original volume, with the exception that a high quality art paper and modern binding techniques have been used to provide modern production values.

abc British Railways Locomotives Combined Volume Winter 1964 contains a nostalgic snapshot of a railway scene which has long since disappeared. A welcome addition to this long-running series of reprints. Contains around 100 black & white illustrations. 320 pages. Hardback.
