Description

Since the 1970s Keith Strickland has travelled the world in search of steam, camera in hand. In this outstanding book he has gathered together his finest images which show the contrasting style of steam travel today in Europe, Africa, China, Cuba, India and beyond. This unique look at steam around the globe presents the reader with fascinating insights into the locos in action, stations, passengers, industry and the daily lives of those who make a living beside the tracks. These superb photographs capture the heady atmosphere of steam railways and the sheer pleasure of trains as a means of travel. It is a book that will appeal as much to the armchair and travelling tourist as to those with a passion for steam. In his capacity as an active worker for the charity, The Railway Children, Keith Strickland is donating all his proceeds from this book to them to improve the lives of children in the Third World who have made railways stations their impromptu homes.
