Hardcover in As New condition with As New dustjacket. First edition, pp 160, colour photographs throughout, bibliography. This is a beautiful full colour book, featuring the evocative photography of Bill Reed. It is a remarkable collection of rare colour images that document our railway heritage. Noted railway photographer Bill Reed shows his pin-sharp colour pictures of the last days of Scottish steam for the first time in this lavish, 160 page, hardback book.

In some cases Scotland was the only area operating the once famous Gresley A4 locomotives and Bill wasted no time in capturing them on their last duties. The pictures illustrate steam locomotives trundling along many of the branch lines now long gone; waiting in sleepy stations, long abandoned; as well as pausing on shed or dumped on scrap lines, awaiting their ultimate fate. Bill had access to most areas to take pictures and was not hampered
