In this fascinating collection of the days of steam throughout Britain's rail network, we are also
shown the 'backstage' areas like engine sheds, coaling plants and turntables
where locomotives are prepared for the working day.
Such is the detail of Malcolm's paintings that once again enthusiasts and
railwaymen alike will be able to rekindle their memories of steam. But
there is more than just accuracy here. Because of his understanding of, and
love of railways, Malcolm's paintings are imbued with the very atmosphere of
railway life; the bustle and roar, the smell of hot oil and steam combined,
and the sound of approaching exhaust beats on a clear calm day. Truly a
book you will treasure and return to again and again.
