A Pageant of British Steam. Steam Preservation In The 21st Century by Jim Geoff Swaine

85c3aa4d-f739-4042-8899-2c227de9a498

This is a much more optimistic book than the one covering the end of steam (as it should be?). Its 134 pages are lavishly-illustrated in full colour throughout, showing examples of just about ever preserved standard gauge steam locomotives. Preserved narrow gauge railways are not represented. Locations range from preserved lines through to main line running. The colour reproduction and printing values are first class and the captions are informative. There’s a useful index of standard gauge preserved railways, as well as a general index. Though preserved, some of the locos illustrated show evidence of work-stains, and are useful as such for modellers. Speaking of modellers, we're surprised that the period described is not more popular with those who build layouts. Think about it; almost anything preserved, goes.
