Working and Preserved Industrial Locomotives Summary

Working and Preserved Industrial Locomotives: From the Bill Reed Collection by Peter Tuffrey

Ex-railwayman Bill Reed, now 78, has spent most of his life driving, photographing or observing locomotives in the UK and abroad - even at times behind the former 'Iron Curtain'. In this book we see his pictures of industrial locomotives - taken throughout Britain - at work in varied locations including collieries, breweries and quarries. They are also depicted waiting to be scrapped and in their new life on preserved railway lines. Bill has an enthusiasm for photography, and he has captured locomotives in black and white, colour slides or on cine film. Both black and white and colour are featured in this book. Bill has also gone out of his way to capture even the quirkiest of locomotives. Examples of these may be seen at Newlyn, Penzance and Sittingbourne, Kent. Bill's 2...square inch b & w negatives and 35mm colour slides have been scanned at a high resolution and in some cases digitally enhanced to maximise the appearance of his work. The book will be of interest to enthusiasts who want to recall the part played by these locomotives across the railway network. Others will be happy to see that a number are still in operation and may be encouraged to see them once again.
