Summary

More than 200 outstanding photos of steam around the world

Since the 1970s Keith Strickland has traveled the world in search of steam, camera in hand, and in this outstanding book he has gathered together his finest images which show the contrasting style of steam travel today in Europe, Africa, China, Cuba, India, and beyond. This unique look at steam around the globe presents the reader with fascinating insights into the locos in action, stations, passengers, industry, and the daily lives of those who make a living beside the tracks. These superb photographs capture the heady atmosphere of steam railways and the sheer pleasure of trains as a means of travel. It is a book that will appeal as much to the armchair and traveling tourist as to those with a passion for steam. In his capacity as an active worker for the charity The Railway Children, Keith Strickland is donating all his proceeds from this book to them to improve the lives of children in the Third World who have made railway stations their impromptu homes.
