A while back, while visiting the Foxfield Railway, a browse through one of the second hand stands produced a book by the title above.
Now we, as with many others I’m sure, tend to gloss over the wonderfully generic ‘steam’ books so often seen, which on the whole provide little information of interest to the reader. For some reason we picked this one up and after a very quick flick through, it was put on the must buy pile and cash changed hands.
What is presented inside is a wonderful selection of high quality images showcasing the last days of industrial steam in South Wales – of particular note are the shots showing the more human side of operations.
If you come across this book it is well worth a buy!
