15th March 2017
London Midland Steam Days Remembered offers the very best quality colour photographs of steam from the 1950s and 1960s across the region, with not only Stanier’s fabulous Duchesses but a full supporting cast of steam from the lower ranks to be enjoyed. These include Royal Scots, Jubilees, Lizzies, and Black Fives, along with a fine collection of Standards and Ivatts and visiting engines from other regions. There are twenty-one separate photographs of Duchesses alone!
Chapters take in steam on the Fells, the men of steam, the North West, the Great Central, Crewe Works, etc., while locations seen in this volume include the Settle & Carlisle, Carnforth, Lancaster, Tebay, Manchester, Liverpool, Derby, Nottingham and Preston, among many others.
