Steam Gold (Paperback)

Geoff Swaine


The heritage railways of Britain have taken preserved steam into a new golden age. All over the country enthusiasts flock to lavish love and attention on the preserved railways and relive bygone eras, especially the ever-popular 1940s re-enactments. But the appeal doesn't only lie in recreating the past; this movement is also forging a new present. The Flying Scotsman ran once again on the main line in 2016 to great acclaim across the country, with crowds lining up to witness the spectacle. In a celebration of the evocative world of Britain's heritage steam railways, Geoff Swaine reflects on the work involved in keeping the preserved railways going, as well as the history of the `Big Four' and insights into many of the heritage sites, alongside an array of striking photographs that bring the preserved railways vividly to life.
