Following on from his popular series examining industrial steam in regions of the UK, Gordon Edgar looks at a series of fascinating workings around the world during the final days of steam in industry. A number of globe-trotting trips in the latter part of the twentieth century and early twenty-first produced a remarkable record of steam at work in locations as varied as Germany, Austria, Poland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Romania, Cuba, Java, India and China.


With stunning, evocative photographs that capture not only the final days of these industrial workhorses but also the atmosphere of the environments in which they toiled, including opencast coal mines, quarries, steelworks and sugar plantations, this is a fitting tribute to an important aspect of international industrial history. The volume focuses on scenes captured in the twenty-first century.
