Scottish Steam 1948-1967


Product Information

ISBN:9781914227219, H/B 


Comprising one-third of the land mass of mainland Britain, Scotland provided a diverse background for railway photographers to record the end of steam.  As dieselisation radiated northward from Southern England, the country became a refuge for locomotives and many enthusiasts rushed with their cameras to record the demise of a great period in British history.

Scottish Steam 1948-1967 presents this era using nearly 250 superb colour and black-and-white images.  The focus is on the various locomotives serving under BR at this time.  These ranged from old pre-Grouping locomotives still in service, to the many LNER and LMSR designs introduced to modernise the respective motive power stocks after 1923.  Following Nationalisation, many of the BR Standard Class varieties saw use in Scotland, whilst heavier freight duties were handled by ex-War Department ‘Austerity’ 2-8-0s that were brought into service under BR from the many war surplus engines.
