Main line steam officially ended on British Railways in 1968. Fortunately, steam has continued on preserved railways and even on the modern main line, and the essence of everyday steam working can still be captured. Here, father and son team Robin and Tailiesin Coombes document their search for one more glimpse of the magic of steam power on the rails of Great Britain.

This evocative collection of more than 120 photographs show that the majesty of steam lives on. From express passenger trains storming up Ais Gill to quiet rural branch lines, from working steam sheds to goods trains trundling past, this book is sure to delight anyone who enjoys the sight of a classic locomotive at work.
