About the Book
This book of 200 pages contains 365 images taken between 1977 and 2011 and depicts all 135 Class 56s, all 50 Class 58s and all 100 Class 60s. It is hoped this will be a useful record for both the railway modeler and also preservation groups of these locomotives.
Born in 1960, my fascination in railways started at an early age and since 1972 I have combined my interest in railways with a passion for photography. After training in surgery between arrival at medical school in 1978 and appointment as a laparoscopic surgeon in 1995, I have continued to take time out to photograph railways all over the world. Out in the real "non-blurb" world I have had 18 books published and my first blurb book - "Requiem for Extreme Steam" was inspired by the efforts of fellow photographer Anthony Guppy and his book about Tehachapi. Married to Irene, we have five children and hope to slow down in our 50s!
