Ayrshire's Last Days of Steam

Ayrshires Last Days of Steam

Ayrshire's Last Days of Steam Ayrshire's Last Days of Steam. This title concentrates on the 1950s and '60's, the last days of steam before diesel, electric power, and Dr Beeching's axe came along to change the railways for ever. Whether these changes were for better or worse, and many today would say the latter, the photographs taken by W.A.C. Smith in those days and collected in this book are an invaluable record of an era when steam ruled and trains were never late. Features 59 excellent photographs of most of the stations which once served Ayrshire including Kilmarnock, Darvel, Mauchline, Dalry, Kilwinning, Saltcoats, plus many others.
