Railway enthusiasts living in London in the 1960s saw steam gradually disappearing from the capital’s railways. By 1966, with a few exceptions only the south-western lines from Waterloo saw main-line steam in any quantity. Despite being in the middle of an all-electric system, steam somehow survived until July 1967 and was only outlasted by steam in the north-west of England, which lingered on f or about ano ther year.

George Woods sets out to show the highs and the lows of that period, with pictures taken at Waterloo, Weymouth, Salisbury, the Isle of Wight and beyond. Also featured are some of the many ent husiast specials t hat ran during t his period, and the Army locos that ran on the Longmoor Militar y Railway. Utilising rare and unpublished full colour photography, this is a wonderfully nostalgic look back at the final years of steam in the Sout hern Region.
