Ron Buckley's striking photographs show the changing locomotive scene throughout the Great Western Railway and its successor the Western Region of British Railways from the mid 1930s until the end of main-line steam traction in the mid 1960s.Whilst the modern express passenger locomotives plied the main lines, a wealth of pre-grouping locomotives carried out the more mundane suburban passenger, branch-line and shunting work. Many routes continued to be worked by a series of ageing Victorian 4-4-0s and 0-6-0s until after the grouping when the Great Western supplied a series of very able 4-4-0s and later 4-6-0s, which continued operating into the 1950s and '60s when some of the British Railways Standard classes started to appear.Great Western Steam is an evocative retrospective of a treasured and iconic company.

R.J. (Ron) Buckley’s photographs illustrate the locomotive scene in Scotland, witnessed across his long career on the railways. This evocative collection of images commemorates the age of steam and reveals the changes wrought across that era, from the 1930s ex- Highland ‘Castle’ and ‘Clan’ 4-6-0s and the graceful looking ex-Great North of Scotland 4-4-0s, to the ex-North British ‘Glen’ and ‘Scott’ 4-4-0s, the Caledonian 4-4-0s, numerous 0-6-0 classes and the few Glasgow and South Western locomotives still working. By the early 1950s all the ex-Glasgow and South Western locomotives had gone and there were few ex-Highland or Great North of Scotland locomotives in service, but many ex-North British and Caledonian locomotives could still be seen. It is a must-have volume for Scottish railway enthusiasts.

Ron Buckley's photographs show the changing locomotive scene taking place from the later 1930s throughout the East Midlands and East Anglia, illustrating pre-grouping locomotive classes still working across Lincoln, Cambridge, Norfolk, Suffolk, Nottingham, Leicester, Northampton, Bedford, Hertford, Buckingham and Essex. During later LNER days, locomotives of the Great Eastern and Great Northern Railways continued working the many secondary routes and branch lines while the main East Coast saw from 1935 the appearance of Nigel Gresley's streamlined class A4 locomotives working the high speed passenger traffic between Edinburgh and London. The LMS influence saw many former London and North Western and Midland Railway locomotives handling both passenger and goods traffic especially the product of the many collieries in Nottinghamshire.

David Soggee's slide shows have been captivating railway society gatherings in London and the Home Counties for many years, but he has had few pictures published and is probably not so well known outside this area. Now, for the first time, he has assembled a selection of his photographic masterpieces for a wider audience to enjoy. This album focuses on the Western Region as it was in the late 1950s and early 1960s, before diesel traction and the Beeching branch line closure plan had made significant impact. In addition to a wonderful variety of locomotives and routes, the images also portray the railway infrastructure of the time and will delight the modeller and historian alike.

Southern Railway Gallery is the first volume in a new series of picture books, designed to be of interest to railway historians and modelers. The series subjects are themed to include an interesting mixture of useful historic illustrations, depicting locomotives, rolling stock and infrastructure. Southern Railway Gallery covers the history of the Southern Railway from its beginnings in 1923, to nationalization in 1948, covering most aspects of its fascinating history and operations. The book looks at aspects of the Southern from the early years in the early 1920s, when the company had old worn-out stock on many of its lines, through to the introduction of new modern rolling stock and the electrification of much of its network in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and parts of Hampshire. The company operated an extensive rail and bus network on the Isle of Wight, which covered the whole island and is well remembered to this day. Although the Southern introduced a number of modern new steam classes, its main goal was to electrify as much of the network as possible, however this did not preclude the company from introducing two classes of successful Pacific type locomotives in the 1940s. The company owned and operated docks and harbors throughout its existence, having an extensive fleet of ferries and cargo vessels, some of which served with the Royal Navy in the Second World War as hospital ships. The Southern, also operated bus and road services, which covered many areas not served by a local railway station on the system. The Southern Railway ceased to exist at midnight on 31 December 1947, after a remarkable existence of twenty-four years.

Ron Buckley's photographs show the changes in locomotive power taking place throughout the London Midland and Scottish Railway in England and its successor, the London Midland Region of British Railways, from the later 1930s to the end of main line steam in 1968. They include the design work of Samuel Johnson Henry Fowler, John Aspinall, George Hughes and Francis Webb, and feature Fowler's three cylinder 'Royal Scot' class, Stenier's two impressive 'Princess Royal' and 'Princess Coronation', as well as his 'Black 5' and 'Jubilee'. Much of the goods traffic was still handled by a large number of ageing 0-6-0 tank and tender classes from all of the pre-grouping railways, and heavy goods and mineral traffic were being hauled by ex-LNWR and ex-L&Y 0-8-0 locomotives. Buckley spent most of his career working this region and his evocative photographs recall the glory days of steam.
