The closing years of steam on the railways of Great Britain took place during a traumatic period for the railways - not only was a trusted form of traction being displaced, but at the same time the system was contracting and unremunerative lines were being closed to balance the books. For the enthusiast who had grown up with steam locomotives it was a particularly sorry time and the 1960s saw a flurry of photography to record a passing era.
Today those days seem far behind us, and to a new generation of enthusiasts the sight of a steam engine is an unusual and puzzling occurrence. Steam in Scotland - 1, a new impression of a book first published in 1968, will therefore do more than simply recreate memories for the older enthusiast. To those too young to have seen working steam-hauled trains it will present a glorious picture of the past, with material by some of the best photographers taken in some of the most photogenic landscapes of the British Isles - a brilliant kaleidoscope of images of the classic days of Scottish steam.
