A Pageant of British Steam is a book honouring the position to which Britain's Heritage Steam Railways has now arrived. Preservation has become the word for the achievements of the thousands of volunteers who have given up a mass of time to advance the saving of this section of Britain's history. Most of these people are the likely descendants of our Industrial Revolution where the skills have never been forgotten. The book shows in fine colour photography the wonderful selection of locomotives and rolling stock running on our preserved lines - all across the country. Text highlights the historical background of railway history from the earliest times right through to the 'end of steam' in the nineteen sixties. Geoff Swaine has emerged to be a leader in this field of photography, be it lineside or heritage working steam. His style is one of his own, where the subject leaps from the page, usually bathed in fine sunlight with blue sky above. Informative captions accompany every picture not only targeting the novice or newcomer to the subject, but the experienced rail enthusiast will also be pleased to learn a thing or two. This book strongly features the historical background as well as catching some of the people who now revel in dressing the part to prove their love of this enthralling and popular subject.
