Compiled by a lifelong railway enthusiast, "From Crewe to Euston" overflows with nostalgia for the golden age of steam railways. In 200 photographs, Rod Steele takes us from Crewe, the hub of the London Midland Region and most trainspotters' Mecca, to London Euston, via the southern portion of the West Coast mainline and including stops at Stafford, Tamworth, the Trent Valley, Rugby, Bletchley and Watford, as well as Willesden and Camden sheds. Along the 158 mile route, we see a wide range of motive power, including all the principal ex-LMS locomotives - Duchesses, Princesses, Patriots, Jubilees and Black Fives. Also illustrated are a number of named trains, such as the Caledonian, the Mancunian, the Merseyside Express and the Royal Scot. Join the trainspotters of the 1950s and early '60s on this trip down memory lane.
