80 pp, 8 1/4" H, soft cover. ISBN 0852635311 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. "When Britain's railways were nationalised in 1948 more than nineteen thousand steam locomotives were taken over from the private companies, and the manufact ure of steam locomotives continued until 1960. Thereafter they were rapidly replaced by diesels and electrics, and in 1968 steam haulage on British Railways ended. This book describes the principal classes of steam locomotives working ac t i v e l y i n Britain between 1948 and 1968, with emphasis on those types of which examples have been preserved. The author discusses the engines under the headings express, mixed traffic, tank and freight locomotives, comparing designs inherit ed f ro m th e G WR , L MSR, LNER and SR with the subsequent BR Standard classes. There is a useful list of locomotives that have been preserved telling where each can be seen, and there are many photographs of the engines at work." Interior - pr evi ous ow ne r's s ma ll st am p on inside of front cover, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks.
