This is a new and revised edition of a book which contains a remarkable amount of information on the steam era on British Railways. A companion volume to Hugh Longworth's British Railways Steam Locomotives 1948-1968, this book provides a locomotive-by-locomotive allocation record during the period from 1948 to 1968.
Each locomotive is listed with its number, name, full reallocation listings and withdrawal dates. Shed names and shed code changes are shown, coloured graphics are used throughout to highlight the different regions and a map shows the location of the depots.
Although primarily designed as a work of reference with detailed data tables throughout, the book also contains a range of illustrations portraying typical examples of some of the locomotive classes featured.
Hardback, 400 pages, black & white photographs
