This book is based on the author’s career with British Railways from 1956 to 1995, a career spanning almost 40 years and moving through from Victorian steam locomotive technology to the age of computers and even a spell on the Waterloo & City.

About 1954 Brian Aynsley discovered that there was a loco depot at Guildford and after that he spent many happy hours watching the operations in and around that station. He was invited onto the footplate of an engine standing at the station and knew then that when he left school he wanted to work on steam locomotives. The book tells the story of his ensuing railway career from engine cleaner at Guildford onwards. He witnessed the demise of steam, the arrival of new motive power and the eventual restructuring of the nation’s railway network.

A5 format, 208 pages, 110 illustrations.
