ferroequinologist (noun) Someone who studies the ‘Iron Horse’ (i.e. trains and locomotives). From the Latin ferrus ‘iron’ and equine ‘horse’ + -logist As the British steam era drew to a close, a young Keith Widdowson set out to travel on as many steam-hauled trains as possible – documenting each journey in his notebooks. In Confessions of a Steam Age Ferroequinologist, he cracks these books open and blows off the dust. His self-imposed mission, that of riding behind as many Iron Horses as possible prior to their premature annihilation, led to hours of nocturnal travels, extended periods of inactivity in station waiting rooms, missed connections and fatigue. However, any downsides of his quest were compensated by the camaraderie found amongst a group of like-minded colleagues who congregated on such trains. This is a book that no self-respecting ferroequinologist should be without.

In this, his second book, life long steam enthusiast Rod Steele takes a nostalgic look at the 299-mile journey from London Euston to Carlisle over the London Midland Region's West Coast Main Line. Along the route the much loved LMR express steam locomotives including Duchesses, Princesses, Royal Scots, Jubilees and Patriots are seen at work together with mixed traffic and freight engines. Named trains such as 'The Royal Scot' and 'The Mid-Day Scot' are seen thundering along, with other named trains like 'The Midlander', 'The Merseyside Express' and 'The Mancunian', which travelled the line for parts of their journeys. Commencing at London Euston, the journey also includes the excitement of visits to the principle engine depots at Camden, Willesden, Crewe, Edge Hill and Carlisle Upperby, which recall just how much variety there was for enthusiasts of the day to enjoy. Join the trainspotters of the golden age to savour the splendour of steam's heyday once more.

This is a class by class survey with over 200 illustrations, covering all the top link and freight classes, also looking at the smaller types of locomotive, operating on branch lines and doing more humble tasks. The author explores what happened to them and also looks at those that eventually made their way into preservation.
