More About This Title Steam Today


The heritage railway scene across Britain is a thriving network that makes the evocative lost world of steam locomotives accessible to railway enthusiasts and visitors everywhere. Photographer Geoff Swaine has put together a selection of 200 railway photographs across Britain’s heritage railways, from the Bluebell Railway to Llangollen, Severn Valley, North York Moors, Didcot, Kent & East Sussex, Great Central Railway, and many more. Also including sections on the war years, the Big Four, the Chief Mechanical Engineers, and the different types and wheel arrangements, this evocative book offers much to enjoy for both casual and serious heritage railway enthusiasts.


Geoff Swaine embarked upon a career as a leading heritage photographer and photographic archivist after retiring from his work as an architect. He has had more than 500 photographs published and has written a number of books and articles on railways, sports, and architecture.
