Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

The last generation of steam on British railways is fondly remembered and its demise, in favour of electric and diesel, usually accepted as the inevitable result of progress and modernization. This outspoken analysis of the period challenges this view, examining the actions of BR managers, engineers and politicians and concluding that serious mistakes were made and that decisions such as building the Standard Class steam locomotives and developing diesel main line locomotives were highly questionable.
