This book is a detailed record of the locomotives that were in operation in the South Yorkshire coalfield, and covers the period from Nationalisation and the creation of the National Coal Board (NCB) up until the mid 1960's. Arranged by colliery (in an A to Z format), the book is thus an invaluable reference for anyone with an interest in this aspect of our industrial and transport history.
The book includes 16 pages of plate black and white photographs, and there are 2 photographs per page (thus totalling 32 photographs, each with a caption detailing the locomotive featured).
