Scottish Steam's Final Fling
Extracts From A Teenager's NotebookseBook - 2017
In May 1967, Scotland became the third of the six BR regions to dispense with the steam locomotive. Residing over 300 miles away Keith Widdowson's pilgrimages north of the border were by necessity of marathon undertakings. Abysmal overnight time keeping, missed connections, trains allegedly booked steam but turning up diesel ... but these setbacks were eclipsed by successes such as catching runs with LNER classes of A2, A4, V2 and B1's and BR Clans. Accompanied with brief historical data of routes and stations visited, many of which have long disappeared, this book is a collection of reminiscences from those final two years - which anyone with a penchant for railways will enjoy.
