From the cover: The true flavour of the glory days of steam is brought to life in this richly illustrated collection of tales and first-hand accounts from passengers and railwaymen across Britain. From the glamorous drivers on the great mainline locomotives to everyday commuters and train spotting schoolboys, the engaging stories give a real glimpse into the lives of those who lived and worked in the steam era.

Hundreds of glorious photographs featuring trains, stations, staff and passengers truly transport the reader back to this lovingly remembered age of transport . Special feature spreads interspersed throughout the book focus on some of the most visually striking aspects of the railways during this time, such as extreme weather, record-breaking trains and the artworks used to decorate the carriages.
