Steaming Across Britain A Nostalgic Journey Through the Golden Years of Steam Railways by Julian Holland

This nostalgic book looks back to the glorious final years of Steam on the British railways in the 1950s & 1960s. Featuring 33 routes covering the entire country, this guide is a fascinating combination of meticulously researched railway history and more than 350 rarely-seen images from Britain's leading railway photographers.


Publishers like to speak of their products being lavishly illustrated, and for once that much-overused phrase is entirely appropriate. This really is a gorgeous production, with its large format, glossy paper and mote than 350 well printed photographs, many of them in colour. Anthony Burton, writing in Countryfile magazine

The demand for coffee table type books depicting the steam age in all its grime and glory appears to be insatiable, and Julian Holland has perfected the art of satisfying this demand. Heritage Railway magazine

Period photos are so evocative you call all but hear engines powering along the tracks. Mail on Sunday THIS wonderfully researched, superbly presented book takes a nostalgic look back to the glorious final years of steam on Britain's railways in the 1950s and 1960s. The Sun
