Looking Back At Peaks by Derrick Kevin
This wonderful volume deals with Classes 44 45 and 46 from their earliest days with the introduction of D1 Scafell Pike in 1959 through to the last few Peaks to survive in everyday service. As usual the book has not been filled up with lots of preserved pictures; instead a selection of archive photographs has been used to illustrate our subjects. Chapters take a look at all of the names including so many of those wonderful regiment names and badges in detail. We examine the myriad of nose end variations and livery details. Double-heading night time views and some delightful shots of Peaks in their steam heat days are to be found inside these 96 pages all in full colour.
