Format: Hardcover
Mr. Strickland has had a lifelong fascination with steam trains. This fascination has taken him around the world looking for and documenting steam trains that are still in use in the 21st century. He would be the first to admit that as the years progress finding steam trains gets more and more difficult. His searches have literally taken him around the globe. Cuba, Burma, India, China, Ukraine, you get the idea. He has chosen to shoot his photos in black and white as he feels this gives a more accurate depiction of how these trains are to look. He gives very good descriptions of the trains, routes and people involved with these rapidly disappearing trains. The photos are a fun documentation for generations to come of these marvels. Many of them are still working over a century after their creation. Kudos also to those organizations who have taken it upon themselves to maintain these wonderful reminders of our transportation past. Very worthwhile.
