Synopsis

Since the 1970s Keith Strickland has travelled the world in search of steam. In this, his fourth photographic collection of steam from around the globe, he has gathered together a wonderful selection of images which show both passenger and industrial steam at work in Europe, Africa, China, Cuba, India and beyond.

These superb photographs capture the heady atmosphere of steam railways and the sheer pleasure of trains as a means of travel. It is a book that will appeal as much to the armchair and travelling tourist as to those with a passion for steam.

In his capacity as an active worker for the charity, The Railway Children, Keith Strickland is donating all his proceeds from this book to them to improve the lives of children in the Third World who have made railways stations their impromptu homes.
