STEAM'S LAMENT London Midland Region Engine Sheds IV 20A to 28B
Continuing in the same format as the acclaimed titles covering the British Railway's Standard locomotive fleet we turn our attention towards visiting all of the London Midland Region's engine sheds during the period 1948 to 1968. We have chosen the finest unpublished views possible to include as wide a range of locomotive classes on shed as we could find during the last ten years. The selections have been made on the basis of both high quality images but also they have been chosen to bring back the real life of visiting the sheds during the last twenty years of British Railways steam.
Within this volume we visit 20A to 28B based upon the 1948 - 1950 shed codes:
These engine sheds are all to be seen within: Leeds Holbeck, Stourton, Royston, Normanton, Manningham, Saltley, Bourneville, Redditch, Bromsgrove, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bristol Barrow Road, Gloucester Barnwood, Skipton, Keighley, Hellifield, Lancaster, Accrington, Rose Grove, Lostock Hall, Lower Darwen, Wakefield, Huddersfield, Goole, Mirfield, Sowerby Bridge, Low Moor, Farnley Junction, Newton Heath, Agecroft, Bolton, Bury, Bacup, Lees, Belle Vue, Bank Hall, Aintree, Southport, Wigan L&Y, Walton-on-the-Hill, Blackpool Central and Fleetwood.
Each volume is 128 pages with a superb selection of high quality black & white photographs depicting these locations as we remember them. The print runs are limited to just 1000 copies, therefore to avoid disappointment we advise you place your order straightaway.
Future volumes will cover all of the regions in similar detail and will provide a wonderful record of the era.
"I received two of your new “Steam’s Lament” books on engine sheds a few days ago. They are really good books with excellent photos and descriptions, and I can’t wait for further books in this series for other regions." John Roebuck by email
