LMS Steam at Euston & Camden : Loco-Spotting in the 1950s & 1960s Paperback
by Rod Steele
LMS Steam is an unashamed and evocative celebration of the golden age of loco-spotting.
The 1950s and 1960s were the final decades for British steam locomotives and for the price of a platform ticket a generation of youngsters gathered on railway stations to record their passing.
Each and every sighting was carefully logged in a notebook, or underlined in one of the must-have ABC Locospotter books with over a million being sold every year.
Euston station and Camden Shed offered especially rich pickings with classic locomotives of the LMS era - the majestic Duchesses, the powerful Royal Scots and the numerous Jubilees.
This evocative account is illustrated with over 200 superb photographs. 'Lone gone days are recaptured. A golden time when spotters chased up and down the platforms at Euston to record the arrivals and departures of steam-hauled express trains of the former London Midland & Scottish Railway, then tried to access Camden Shed to observe engine movements on shed.'
