London Underground Steam – 1st edition

£9.99

Product description

London Underground Steam – 1st edition
Kevin McCormack

Ian Allan Publishing, 2011: 1st edition.

Hardback; 245 x 190 mm; pictorial glazed boards; 80 pages; profusely illustrated with colour photographs; printed on good quality glossy paper. No dust jacket.

The book is in fine condition.
“From its origins in the 1960s, the future London Underground network was a significant user of steam traction; it was only with the development of electric traction that the deep level tube network became practical and eventually steam traction became limited effectively to two types of traffic: the Metropolitan lines north of Baker Street and for engineering trains on the surface sections. Apart from this traffic, which was under the control of London Transport, there remained a certain amount of steam traction used for freight traffic on the passenger lines inherited by the Underground from the LNER, such as the lines to Edgware and Ongar, until freight traffic over these lines ceased. This wonderful new colour album examines the last two decades of steam on the Underground. Exclusively the only book currently in print that concentrates solely on steam traction's role on the underground, it also boasts a selection of previously unpublished colour photographs, all accompanied by informative captions.”
