INDUSTRIAL RAILWAYS IN COLOUR - SCOTLAND

For this book (fourth in his Industrial Railways in Colour series) attention is turned to Scotland, the country that (in the form of Ayrshire) witnessed early personal memories of BR steam, plus events that were significant in his then-youthful developing interest in industrial railways.

From his home in Yorkshire, he had regularly gone north of the border for holidays since his early teens and, as he was preparing this book, many personal memories came back to mind. Things such as his first-ever visit to Scotland (as a fourteen year old) when train-spotting interests led to his family eating a sandwich lunch beside the Stranraer to Ayr line, where he witnessed the thrilling spectacle of double-headed ‘Black 5s’ on a northbound passenger train.

By the time he was sixteen, he was organising his own tours and recall that the BR Scottish Region was very friendly towards railway enthusiasts and would issue shed permits by the handful to private individuals such as himself, particularly if the week’s tour involved purchasing an all-line ‘Railrover’ ticket. He visited Ayr several times, because he loved watching ‘Crabs’ working on the local coal trains.
