An addition to the burgeoning series of photographic studies based on images from the collection of Maurice Dart, Cornwall-based photographer and authority on steam and diesel locomotive types. This volume covers much of the twentieth century through to the end of the age of steam on railways in the counties of Lancashire and Cheshire.

Here are rare photographs, many of them taken by the author, of main line locomotives and private and industrial lines, many of which no longer exist. Each is accompanied by the author’s own text, unique reminiscences of the locomotives that once ran on the region’s extensive rail system. Now in his seventies, from a boy Maurice Dart has travelled throughout much of Britain armed with a camera, taking photographs of all things railway. His collection, now numbering many thousands of images, has been the source of many small publications and has been used in countless magazines and journals.

Here for the first time is a comprehensive look at a major part of this unique collection – a book that will become a classic.

Maurice Dart lives in St Austell, Cornwall. His enthusiasm for railways has been with him since he first travelled with a camera back in the 1930s. His own photographs, each meticulously recorded with locations and dates, comprise the bulk of a collection to which he as added rare and important photographs from other sources.
