By the mid 1960s steam had pretty much disappeared from railways in the South West of England save for a small pocket on the Southern Region which survived until 1967. To one enthusiastic teenager living in Plymouth, the nearest place to see working mainline steam was in Weymouth, Dorset, with other operations such as the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway and the Isle of Wight also in their final throes of steam. And so, armed with camera loaded with Kodachrome transparency film, the fifteen-year-old Roger Malone set out to record the final months in these outposts of steam. Now, over 40 years later, these images are again seeing the light of day in this fascinating new book. The colour photographs taken all those years ago capture the essence of the times, as the last embers died in the fireboxes of elderly locomotives
