At the start of 1963, author and photographer Charlie Verrall was disillusioned after the withdrawal of so many steam locomotives at the end of the previous year. However, coaxed into returning to his old hobby, he would spend the next few years until 1966 recording as much of the scene as he could.
Following on from Search for Steam: British Rail 1951-1962, the second book in the series, Search for Steam: British Rail 1963-1966, looks at the fascinating final years of steam on Britain's railways. With many rare and unpublished photographs taken in a range of locations, including Swindon, Bristol, Manchester and Carlisle, Charlie recounts his journeys across the length and breadth of the country to capture a variety of locomotives and workings in the final days of British Rail steam.
Lavishly illustrated throughout, this is a nostalgic look back on the end of an era.
