Steam Heritage 1972-1985: A Pictorial Tribute (Pen & Sword)

Back Order

It is over fifty years since the main line steam revival began in October 1971 with the return to steam of 6000 King George V, thanks to the efforts of Peter Prior and the help from the British Railways Board.

This is not the whole story, in that the preservation movement was developing and beginning to mature, as more preserved railways opened throughout the country. These developments took place fifty years ago and subsequently, are forming their own history. The period covered in this book reflects on times when main line steam travel and preserved railways developed and matured into the steam operations we experienced as we entered the twenty first century.

This book contains colour images from the author's collection of large format slides, using over 200 photographs with informative captions to describe the scenes depicted, in chronological order. The key role in railway preservation played by volunteers is also acknowledged in this book. Photographs are taken at heritage railways up and down the country, as well as on the main line. Hardback. 124 pages.
