Description

The years 1966 and 1967 saw many steam enthusiasts heading north to photograph and record the last steam-worked trains on the Midland Region of British Rail. In this volume, George Woods presents a selection of previously unpublished photos from his large collection, taken in settings ranging from the urban areas of the Midlands and Lancashire to the wide open moors of Westmorland. The closure of Carlisle Kingmoor shed at the end of 1967 resulted in the end of steam on the West Coast Main Line and saw the end of most steam-hauled passenger trains and long-distance steam-hauled freight traffic. Showing the locomotives and trains that were running at the end of steam in everyday traffic and some of the railtours that were run for enthusiasts, this is a wonderfully evocative and nostalgic look back at the twilight years of steam.
