steam grand finale

Steam: The Grand Finale is a landmark publication chronicling the last months of steam on the British Railways main line.

Years of painstaking research by Alan Castle, who viewed the proceedings at first hand 40 years ago, and interviews with drivers, firemen and engine shed staff, have resulted in this authoritative and definitive account of the year in which the final whistle sounded on a steam era dating back more than 150 years.
