Description

Fill up and go will never compete with shovel and shunt. Tragically, the glory days of steam are gone for good, but this is an opportunity for enthusiasts and others alike to experience a golden age in British history. A lifelong devotee of the steam train, Ray Trader was fortunate enough to witness the tail end of the steam era. Based in the North West, he took to the rails in pursuit of the dying embers of a coal-fired industrial dream. The locomotives that fuelled the birth of an industrial nation would soon succumb to the commuter age, leaving a sanitised, soulless world in which the once mighty steam train is merely a novelty. Join Ray on his vapour trail, experiencing the romance of steam travel before the bland supremacy of crude diesel ripped the heart out of rail travel.
