LAST DAYS OF STEAM WESTERN & SOUTHERN

£19.99

Last Days Of Steam Western & Southern.Tony Butcher was fascinated by railways from a young age.Throughout his life he has amassed a priceless collection of images recording the last, glorious days of steam, especially in the southern and western regions which are the focus of this book.

Chasing Society Steam specials, which were often aimed at using last in class engines, as well as traversing lines and routes either freight only or about to be totally closed,Tony’s black and white images portray the poetry and power of these living machines.From 1962(and particularly from 1964)his colour images add a sometimes startling depth and immediacy to his collection.

Together these classic examples offer a nostalgic yet stunning view of steam traction between 1956 and 1967, in what are arguably the most interesting Regions of Britain.
