Portrait of Steam was intended by Eric Treacy to be a selection of his better known photographs, showing the steam locomotive in every kind of setting and mood. Treacy himself described it as an impression rather than a balanced selection. Featuring locations on both the East and West Coast Main Lines and from London north via Leeds and Carlisle to Scotland, this is a wonderfully evocative collection of black and white photographs by one of Britain's most famous railway photographers.
This book was originally published in hardback in 2004 by one of Britain's foremost transport publishers and is now available for the first time in paperback. It has been freshly designed but will seek to retain the author's original text and illustrations.
