The disappearance of steam from Britain’s mainline railways marked the end of an era of British rail travel. Here Andrew Britton explores the last steam mainline from London, linking Waterloo to Weymouth via Basingstoke, Winchester, Southampton, and Bournemouth, from its post-war presence right to the end of steam in 1968. Full of reminiscences of one who was there to experience steam at first hand, the book explores the rich history of the line and also details the route complete with gradient profiles and maps. Full color on luxury art paper and richly enhanced by previously unpublished illustrations, as well as unique artifacts from the author’s unparalleled collection, this is an edition no railway enthusiast or heritage traveler can be without.
