1 - 2 weeks availability
LMS Steam is an unashamed and evocative celebration of the golden age of loco-spotting. The 1950s and 1960s were the final decades for British steam locomotives and for the price of a platform ticket a generation of youngsters gathered on railway stations to record their passing. Each and every sighting was carefully logged in a notebook, or underlined in one of the must-have ABC Locospotter books with over a million being sold every year. Euston station and Camden Shed offered especially rich pickings with classic locomotives of the LMS era - the majestic Duchesses, the powerful Royal Scots and the numerous Jubilees. This evocative account is illustrated with over 200 superb photographs. 'Lone gone days are recaptured. A golden time when spotters chased up and down the platforms at Euston to record the arrivals and departures of steam-hauled express trains of the former London Midland & Scottish Railway, then tried to access Camden Shed to observe engine movements on shed.'
This is the third book by railway enthusiast Rod Steele. Smitten by the loco-spotting bug as a youngster growing up in London, he now lives in the Manchester area.
