Men, Machines and Maintenance at Exmouth Junction Paperback / softback
Thanks to the unending lure of the steam engine reincarnated in the 21st century on the numerous preserved lines, there is a hunger to learn exactly what it was like to work upon and maintain these monsters during their time of public service.
Whilst numerous books appear on the drivers and firemen, there are precious few on the maintenance, and so this new title will surely fill a gap.
Former Exmouth junction steam and diesel fitter Bob Trevelyan recounts his tales of working under the conditions of the 1960s together with the often larger than life characters he worked with.
A fascinating account, 'warts and all' about what it was like to be with the men, the machines and the maintenance thereof.
