This book contains a fascinating collection of early 1970s photographs taken by the author which chronicle the final days of steam powered locomotion at collieries in Cumberland and Lancashire. The nostalgic photos are accompanied by detailed captions identifying each of the locomotives and giving an account of their smoke-filled lives. The locations are mainly in the areas surrounding Whitehaven, Leigh and Wigan and the collieries featured include Haig Colliery, Bickershaw Colliery, Lowca, Harrington, Ladysmith, Walkden, Astley Green and Bedford‘Gamma’ at work at the Vane Tempest Colliery just North of Seaham Harbour

The book thus provides a detailed pictorial history of steam in the mining industry of the North-West, 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
