2 Carter, JR Footplate Cameraman
UK Heathfield Railway Publications 2009 Hardcover Excellent/Very Good No Jacket 30cm 
800g & 128 crisp white pp. A personal view of the dying years of steam on Britain's railways full of black & white photos. Jim Carter impressed many with rail & photography inclinations; here's a comment on his passing >>>Like a few of us with photographic - inclinations, he took his opportunities when he could, although not all railwaymen were accomodating. His shot at Diggle on the pair of 2-8-0's always impressed me. He took the trouble to record the 'clearing a path' while he was there. The main road was barely clear through Uppermill but I doubt anyone would have made it to Diggle even on foot. Someone once told me he used a medium format folding camera that was held together with elastic bands. It doesnt suprise me as photography was an expensive game. The thing is, he took classic shots and showed that one didn't need expensive state of the art equipment to do that.....Just an eye for a picture. . . and another >>> When I bumped into Jim Carter in the mid-Eighties, the fear of causing him even the slightest embarrassment deterred me from asking for his autograph. We met on the embankment overlooking Marsden's reverse curves at the Yorkshire end of Standedge Tunnel, a line he regularly worked during his days on the footplate. Mindful of those romantic tales about steam days, I asked him - Did he really fry eggs and bacon on a shovel across the firebox? Jim left me in no doubt about his feelings - "Yon shovel is for feeding t'engine, not your gob!" First out in 1983, this edition 2009. Faults? bump at bottom edge of boards.

6 Herring, Peter Yesterday's Railways Recollections of an Age of Steam
UK David & Charles 2002 Hardcover Excellent Very Good 29cm 
Many still recall when the train was their principal means of travel, whether to school or work, to visit friends and relatives, or to go on a trip away from home. Trains were not only used to transport people; they were also an essential means for daily survival, delivering the coal that heated their homes and food that sat on the dinner table. It was a time when a train journey remained an adventure, and the steam locomotive that made such a journey possible provided a source of both awe and fascination. These times are recalled in Yesterday's Railways, a fascinating book that chronicles England's complete railway history from the ground-breaking years of the 1900's to August 1968 when the engine fires were put out for the last time. Faults? repaired small tear atop dj spine, book is 1.6kgs & 288 crisp soot-free pp (not sure if that's a plus for rail fans?)

13 Wolmar Christian Fire & Steam A New History of the Railways in Britain
Atlantic Books, London 2007 1 84354 022 3 / 9781843540229 First Edition Hard Cover Excellent Very Good 24 Cm Signed by Author
364pp, 850g carded/packed for post. endpaper has a colour presentation plate to the Members of the Rail Freight Group, Christian has signed the book on the title page in black pen. Fire and Steam tells the dramatic story of the people and events that shaped the world’s first railway network, one of the most impressive engineering achievements in history. The opening of the pioneering Liverpool and Manchester Railway in 1830 marked the beginning of the railways’ vital role in changing the face of Britain. Fire and Steam celebrates the vision and determination of the ambitious Victorian pioneers who developed this revolutionary transport system and the navvies who cut through the land to enable a country-wide network to emerge. The rise of the steam train allowed goods and people to circulate around Britain as never before, stimulating the growth of towns and industry, as well many of the facets of modern life, from fish and chips to professional football. From the early days of steam to electrification, via the railways’ magnificent contribution in two world wars, the checkered history of British Rail, and the buoyant future of the train, Fire and Steam examines the social and economical importance of the railway and how it helped to form the Britain of today.
