Steam on Merseyside…and beyond – A marvelous new book


Towards the end of 2015 and new and very significant book was published by David Bryant and John Bannon on the steam railways of Merseyside.

I am very happy to have purchased one of the very first editions and to have gained David Bryant’s signature upon it.

It really is an impressive book that runs to 410 A4 sized pages with 616 photographs, 312 of which are in colour.

For some odd reason Merseyside has not really had many books written and published about the steam era and this is emphasised very clearly by Pete Waterman who has penned the forward.

If you have an interest in the railways of Merseyside (and I obviously do) then this is the book for you. It is not cheap though and comes in at a price of £38.95. However, don’t let that price tag put you off as it is really a very significant piece of work that is well worth the investment of your hard earned cash.
