We take a good look at all of the British Railways Standard Pacifics, with photographs of every one of the Britannias, Clans and the Duke of Gloucester from their introduction in 1951 through to 1968. The selection of high-quality photographs takes in a wide host of locations and workings all chosen to be as evocative as possible. Some of the locations seen within include Swindon, Crewe, St. Pancras, Polmadie, Dover, Patricroft, Liverpool Street, Old Oak Common, Kingmoor, Plymouth, March, Cardiff, Norwich, Manchester, Camden and many more. A real treat for those who are interested and recall Britanias, Clans and the Duke all makes for a sure favourite.
The series are all large landscape format hardbacks, with 128 pages printed onto high quality glossy art-paper, stitch sewn and limited to just 500 copies of each title.

"These are among the finest pictorial volumes BRM has had to review of late, and the usefulness of the wealth of visual information contained within them can't be overestimated. These are highly recommended and represent good value for money" British Railway Modelling - Spring 2019
