Seventies Spotting Days
around Yorkshire & the North East
Within this volume we explore the once busy and diverse number of locations to be visited by our intrepid cameramen in the 1970s, including Doncaster, Sheffield, Wath for the Woodhead electrics, Tinsley, Healey Mills, Leeds, Holbeck, Yorks, Thornaby, Gateshead, Newcastle and Ashington etc.
Back then we could enjoy Deltics on the ECML and an absolute raft of coal and freight trains everyday.
There are at least nineteen different classes of diesel & electric locomotives to be seen plus a wide range of DMU clases almost all now departed from our rails.

The captions seek to entertain the reader as well as to describe all the details of the images as we look back at the events of the day with references to personalities, music, television, sport, films etc all adding up to a cracking nostalgic trip back to the 1970s every time.
