The rapid dieselisation of Britain's railways at the end of the age of steam meant that many designs of locomotives were introduced from a variety of manufacturers. Some were highly successful and generated a very enthusiastic following that continues today.

Diesel Memories is a superb collection of black-and-white photographs, supported by Roger Siviter's informative and well- researched captions, which portrays important locomotive classes from the Deltics, Warships and Westerns, the
Class 25s, 26s, 27s and 37s to the 50s and 47s and even the old DMUs. In addition to the locomotives, there is an important photographic record of locations which have changed almost beyond recognition and of the railway infrastructure, including signal-boxes and semaphore signals which have now disappeared. This book will remind readers of a fascinating evolutionary period for Britain's railways.
