a colour retrospective
Print runs are limited so be quick.
A very good book slightly let down by too many unnecessary close up shots. I know what the locos look like, I would rather have seen more action shots than locos posed in stations or sheds.
Having said that, the rest of the images are excellent, some different locations and plenty of interest on view in those locations shown reminding us of how much of interest has been lost on the railway scene over the last few decades.
I would still recommend this book though as it offers a reminder of those lovely trains and settings that have gone forever.
I hope this will be the first in a series of books covering many more classes of locos.
Most photos well reproduced, and only a small number previously published. A worthy addition to any hydraulic fan’s bookcase.
Anything to do with these fantastic machines gets top marks for me
Top notch book with quality photos.
Superb book and full of stunning photographs from the golden age of UK diesels. Don’t miss out on adding to your collection.

"This does not affect any UK sales. Regrettably one of the issues from Brexit is something called IOSS which the EU has instigated. This means all items being sent into the EU must have individual VAT declarations made and the suppliers of these goods are to register and comply with the relevant rules and collect and report VAT from you the customers. This takes place from 1 July and will impose larger than acceptable administration costs to many sm..."
