Steam in Scotland The Railway Photographs of R.J. (Ron) Buck

Details

R.J. (Ron) Buckley's photographs illustrate the locomotive scene in Scotland, witnessed across his long career on the railways. This evocative collection of images commemorates the age of steam and reveals the changes wrought across that era, from the 1930s ex- Highland 'Castle' and 'Clan' 4-6-0s and the graceful looking ex-Great North of Scotland 4-4-0s, to the ex-North British 'Glen' and 'Scott' 4-4-0s, the Caledonian 4-4-0s, numerous 0-6-0 classes and the few Glasgow and South Western locomotives still working. By the early 1950s all the ex-Glasgow and South Western locomotives had gone and there were few ex-Highland or Great North of Scotland locomotives in service, but many ex-North British and Caledonian locomotives could still be seen.
