In this fascinating portrait of the changing face of the locomotive scene from the later 1930s throughout the East Midlands and East Anglia, the pre-grouping locomotive classes still working across Lincoln, Cambridge, Norfolk, Suffolk, Nottingham, Leicester, Northampton, Bedford, Hertford, Buckingham and Essex are all represented. During later LNER days, locomotives of the Great Eastern and Great Northern Railways continued working the many secondary routes and branch lines, while from 1935 the main East Coast saw the appearance of Nigel Gresley’s streamlined class A4 locomotives working the high-speed passenger traffic between Edinburgh and London. The LMS influence saw many former London and North Western and Midland Railway locomotives handling both passenger and goods traffic especially the product of the many collieries in Nottinghamshire. Here, Ron Buckley’s beautiful photographs and Brian Dickson’s knowledgeable commentary come together to provide unrivalled insight into the region’s railway heritage.
