The Grampian region comprises the counties of Aberdeen, Kincardine, Banff and Moray. Railways were relatively late in arriving in this part of Scotland and it wasn't until 1850 that a line reached Ferryhill on the outskirts of the Granite City. Expansion followed rapidly however and eventually the Great North of Scotland Railway – the company that dominated the region – totalled 334 route miles and had a stock of 122 locomotives. In this history by W.A.C. Smith, the story is told with a wealth of fascinating detail and includes 54 superb photographs taken by the author during the 1950s and '60s – the last days of steam. Locations featured include: Kinnaber Junction, Inverurie, Dunphail, Stonehaven, Portlethen, Cove Bay, Ferryhill, Aberdeen Joint Station, Kittybrewster, Maud Junction, Peterhead, Fraserburgh, St Combs, Macduff, Banff Harbour, Ladysbridge, Tillynaught, Portgordon, Keith, Craigellachie, Rothes, Elgin, Alves, and Forres.
