Author(s): Michael Clemens
The Last Years of Steam Around the East Midlands covers many of the railways across the area and the locomotives that worked over them. In the main, the time period covers the ten years or so from the late 1950s up to the end of steam working in the East Midlands.
In addition to steam locomotives, some of their diesel replacements will also be shown. A number of industrial locations will also be visited, and in particular, the book explores the now-closed Ironstone Railways of the East Midlands.
The photographs, a mixture of colour and black and white, come mostly from those taken by the author and his late father, with the balance coming from his father’s old friends. Most of the photographs have never been published, with all images accompanied by an extensive and informative commentary.
