Stories from the Support Crew

Availability: Out of stock

Author: Michael Mather

The A4 Pacific locomotive No. 60009 Union of South Africa has recently been retired and put into a museum; here, this famous loco’s support crew share their memories and anecdotes of working to keep it running for the enjoyment of thousands of railway enthusiasts over the years.

With experiences stretching back to 1966, when the loco was first purchased from British Railway, these stories are sometimes funny and sometimes serious; all offer a fascinating insight into what it takes to keep a magnificent machine on the rails. Supported by a range of previously unpublished images, this is a wonderful tribute to a terrific locomotive.
