Stenlake Publishing - Ayrshire’s Last Days of Steam

Ayrshire’s Last Days of Steam

Author : W A C Smith
ISBN : 9781840331516
Cover : paperback
Price : £10.00

This is the second title in this railway series concentrating on the 1950s and '60's, the last days of steam before diesel, electric power, and Dr Beeching's deadly axe changed the railways for ever. Whether these changes were for better or worse (and many today would say the latter), this collection of photographs from that era, taken by acclaimed railway historian and photographer W.A.C. Smith, are an invaluable record of the time when steam ruled and trains were never late. Featuring many of the stations which once served all of Ayrshire, the 59 excellent photographs include locations at Kilmarnock, Darvel, Mauchline, Dalry, Kilwinning, Saltcoats, and others together with familiar rolling stock of the day.
