About this product
- DescriptionSteam Around Sheffield, the latest work by prolific railway author Mike Hitches, documents how Yorkshire's 'Steel City' and its environs were faithfully served by steam locomotion for many years. Sheffield, for so long the source of Britain's cutlery, has a rich railway history encompassing various competing companies and a fascinating range of infrastructure and architecture. Here the reader will encounter the Manchester, Sheffield & Lincolnshire Railway, the Midland Railway, the Great Northern Railway, and the Hull & Barnsley Railway among several others. A plethora of illustrations reveals the stations, sheds and locomotives of diverse design that contributed to Sheffield's industrial success. With authoritative captions from an ackwledged expert, a sweeping yet detailed picture is painted of a remarkable system in its prime and in its inevitable decline. Packed with facts about the services run, the engines used, and the locations transformed by these trains, Steam Around Sheffield records for posterity the w disappeared but fondly remembered age of steam in a proud rthern city.
