Following Eric Treacy's death in 1978, the demand for his books has increased. So insistent have been the demands of his fans that Portrait of Steam has been re-issued. Of this volume Eric Treacy originally said:
'Some will say that there is too much in this book; too much repetition. I agree, but I have been asked to include some of my better known pictures. This is a "Portrait" - an attempt to show the steam engine in every kind of setting and mood. It is an impression rather than a balanced selection.
'It is my tribute to all who have loved the steam engine; to those who have designed, built, maintained, cleaned, fired and driven the steam engine - that great kettle on wheels with its coal scuttle behind.'
