In this book, Colin Maggs, a master of railway knowledge, tells the story of the steam railways in the Bristol & Bath region.
His highly-illustrated book is filled with engines, rolling stock, stations and track, together with stories of the people who worked on and used the railways, including passengers, station masters, wheel tappers, ticket collectors, signalmen, and, at the sharp end, the footplate men.
The book contains an explanation of how loco men were able to fry eggs, bacon and mushrooms on a shovel whilst in the noise and heat of the engine cabin.
