Product Description

Composed of just over 6,000 square miles of land, the East Midlands enjoyed a diverse system of railways in the days of steam.  These routes ranged from the main lines connecting the north and south of Britain to small branches, as well as cross-country and local lines.

East Midlands Steam, 1950-1966, presents the twilight years of steam traction in the area with nearly 200 superb colour and black-and-white images.

The book covers Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Notting-hamshire and Rutland.  In addition to the cities that appear – Derby, Leicester, Lincoln, and Nottingham – a number of large towns are included, such as Chesterfield, Grantham, Kettering, Loughborough, Mansfield, Northampton and Wellingborough, etc.

With lines formerly operated by the London, Midland & Scottish Railway and London & North Eastern Railway, many locomotives of these companies are present, alongside the Standard Classes of British Railways.

With a rich industrial heritage in the region, a number of privately owned locomotives appear at work on several sites, such as collieries, quarries and power stations.

The East Midlands was a busy and exciting place for steam enthusiasts to observe and record locomotives at work.  In doing so, a wonderful era of British history has been captured.  This collection has been assembled to celebrate those distant days.
