Packed with rare and unpublished images, Sussex Steam takes the reader on a journey around picturesque Sussex and the steam trains that used to call it home. Taking in what would have been the first route travelled, Rye to Portsmouth in 1841, a number of secondary routes, locomotive sheds and the works in Brighton, these fascinating photographs offer a nostalgic look back to a time when steam was king.

Packed with scenic shots ranging from the days of the LB&SCR to the final days of steam, many shots feature aspects of the local landscape now lost to history, such as signal boxes and forgotten station nameplates, as well as scenes that endure to this day, such as the white cliffs at Lewes. Lavishly illustrated throughout, with photographs supplemented by timetables and excursion notes, Sussex Steam paints a terrific portrait of services throughout the county’s 120 years of steam travel.
