The World's Last Steam Locomotives is a joyful celebration of Colin Garratt's forty years of professionally documenting these wonderful machines. During this time he has visited more than forty countries all over the world, with eight expeditions to India and twenty to China. The result has been a matchless legacy of pictures which can be only be of increasing interest and value as time passes. Colin's work is authentic - no preserved or tourist revivals scenes appear within this book, just real steam locomotives doing what they were designed and built to do. This is the finest possible visual tribute to the steam locomotive ever produced. With 224 pages and more than 300 colour photographs, it documents machines of every conceivable shape, size and colour, often framed by some of the most memorable landscapes in the world. This is a book of great beauty and delight, destined to become the jewel of any trainlover's collection.
