Brand New Book
Industrial locomotives are still in use in the Lothians today at the giant cement factory south of Dunbar but this is the exception - these workhorses of the industrial age are now more likely to be found on preserved lines or displayed in public parks. This fascinating book recalls the history of the area's industrial locomotives, and is packed with over fifty black and white photographs from the 1950s onwards. The photographs feature many well remembered pits, factories and industrial works, as well as showing the locomotives themselves....
The book thus provides a detailed pictorial history of Scotland's industrial steam railways, and is a must read/reference for anyone interested in this area of industrial heritage. Please note their is a small price sticker on the rear side cover
