About this item
Title 26 of 26
Good clean tight condition, corners bumped and spine rubbed.
Steam Trains have been a source of fascination to young and old alike ever since the first railway was opened in the 1830s. Now that electricity and diesel power are replacing steam all over the world it is important to catalogue those fine engines before they completely disappear.
Colin Garratt is a photographer of international repute, who also brings to his work a deep affection for this fascinating subject.
This is one of the first Ladybird books to use photographs rather than illustrations.
This book shows locomotives in the deserts of Africa, the jungles of the Far East and in the heart of the great industrial complexes, where many of them are still working after half a century.
