This is the final volume in Kevin McCormack's brilliant series of books featuring steam operation in and around London from the early 1950s through to the final demise of steam in 1968. In this book, he takes readers on a vivid, pictographic journey through the golden age of steam on the Eastern Region.With its main termini based at King's Cross and Liverpool Street, the Eastern Region was the first to see steam largely eliminated by the early 1960s, with the exception of a few freight services. Prior to that date, however, the Eastern had been a magnet for railway enthusiasts. As the classic 'A4' Pacifics plied their trade on services over the East Coast Main Line from their base at King's Cross, 'Britannia' class Pacifics departed from Liverpool Street providing express services to Ipswich and Norwich, and linking with ferries from Harwich. Apart from the express passenger services, there were also suburban services over the ex-GER lines to places like Chingford and over the ex-LTSR to Southend, as well as considerable freight traffic. Packed with a vast collection of previously unpublished photographs which will delight modellers, and accompanied by a well-informed, entertaining text to satisfy even the most avid railway historian, this is one book that every Eastern Region enthusiast will be proud to put on the bookshelf!
