The early 1950s were spent at ex-Great Eastern sheds at Southend and Cambridge. Redundant, the author was moved to King's Cross where he experienced the antipathy so often directed against 'foreigners' since the Grouping in 1923 when there was an influx of ex-GCR men on promotion. By 1958, when the diesels had arrived, David felt the job would lose the challenge of steam work that he treasured: so he decided to leave the footplate and, having had no difficulty in passing the clerical examination, to seek fresh challenges in an era of rapid change. This book features an A5 format, 240 pages with 130 illustrations and a full-colour perfect-bound jacket.
