The 1960s saw the final hurrah of steam on the railways – the final period of steam-powered locomotives dominating the main line. This meant that a colourful array of traffic could be found across the length and breadth of Great Britain, and an army of enthusiasts both young and old dutifully recorded the nation’s rail scene. Here, in the first of a new series of book celebrating the steam of 1960s Britain, Keith W. Platt looks back at the wide range of traffic that could be found on the busy railways around Carlisle.

Packed with previously unpublished images, this is a book that will delight anybody with memories of steam around Carlisle or an enthusiasm for the area’s railways or history.
