Loco-Hauled Passenger Trains (Key Publishing)

Back Order

By Andy Flowers. A collection of colour illustrations taking a look at the immense variety in locomotive-hauled trains over the last four decades. Features a host of locomotive types of differing power outputs, working a great range of passenger duties. From one-off special trains to day-to-day operations, the whole range of BR and post-privatisation locomotive-hauled trains are covered.

The book begins in the early 1980s when many popular locomotive types were in regular passenger use, including Deltics, Westerns, Classes 25, 31, 33, 37, 40, 87 and others. More unusual classes for passenger duties, including Classes 20 and 56 are also featured. We then move on to the 1990s and the privatisation era, with its dramatic increase in the number of different liveries carried.

Moving on to the 21st century we see new-build locomotive classes join the fray, as well as classic heritage traction returning to main line operation.

Loco-Hauled Passenger Trains is divided into four chapters, each covering a decade and each with an overview of locomotive haulage in that decade. It contains over 170 colour photographs presented in two-per-page format. Every photograph is accompanied by an extensive caption, giving a record of the many changes that have taken place as locomotive-hauled travel declined and, more recently, showed something of a resurgence. 96 pages.
