Description

This is the second book from David Knapman’s personal record of railway views that were captured on black and white film in the late 1950’s and 1960’s, until the demise of steam on British Railways. The style of the book, in keeping with Steam on the Southern and Western, is the well tried and tested pictures and captions format and the majority of pictures are black and white photography. Not every picture portrays a train as there are interesting branch line and infrastructure scenes to view as well, whilst trains will be on main line and secondary routes.

The book carries its share of photographs of British Railways standard locomotives in the locations appropriate to the regions. Where preservation starts to overlap with the still active steam scene, some historic photographs are included. Photographs will be grouped by a particular location, for example, York on the Eastern and Hatch End on the Midland. Each of these topic areas will provide a flavour of the railway activity at the time. The book provides the reader with another gentle meander through the 1950’s and 1960’s railway scene and stir the memories that so many of us have seen and treasure.
