  • Book – Class 37s in the Far West

    160 printed pages of A4 filled with the details of English Electric Type 3 Class 37s at work in the ‘Far West’ of the UK, an area defined by the authors as being west of Taunton and west of Yeovil. Plenty of detail, plenty of photographs (all in colour), nicely reproduced and backed up with plenty of interesting text. The authors, Stephen C. Marshall and Roger Geach, have combined their massive knowledge with a detailed database of workings from 1965 onwards, so it is a good read for anyone who appreciates the rugged power and reliability of the class and the scenic variety that is typical of Cornwall.

    This is a new book, the proceeds from which will go into the D1010 restoration fund (by agreement with the authors).

  • Book – Plymouth to Penzance

    100 printed pages of A4 filled with interesting views of workings in that very special territory, west of Plymouth. Plenty of detail, plenty of photographs (almost all in colour), nicely reproduced and backed up with interesting captions. The author, Roger Geach, has an obvious affinity with the area covered by this book. His knowledge of the workings – and the best locations to photograph them – in this area is second to none.

    There are over 30 photos of ‘Westerns’ along with many others of classes 08, 20, 25, 31, 33, 35, 42, 43, 45, 46, 47, 50, 60, 66, 67 and HSTs. This is a great read.
