LMS & LNER Steam Locomotives is the result of over two decades of photographing steam locomotives in action in many parts of Britain covered by the former LMS and LNER Railway Companies, the two largest of the ‘Big Four’ Railway Companies which operated in Britain between 1923 and 1948. The majority of the photographs were taken during the British Railways era between 1948 and 1968.

Although the author Malcolm Clegg has a sizeable collection of steam locomotive photographs taken during this period, the photographs which appear in this book are from the private collection of his lifelong friend and family relative, Mr Peter Cookson (a retired school-master), himself a railway historian, author and amateur photographer, who has kindly provided the photographs for publication in this book.

Many of the photographs selected are rare and unusual for a variety of reasons which should appeal to railway historians and steam enthusiasts alike.

" An interesting selection of good quality images".

The Railway Correspondence and Travel Society - The Railway Observer, February 2023, Volume 93, Number 1128

In summary, this book comprehensively illustrates and describes locomotives of the former LMS and LNER from Nationalisation. It will be welcomed by LMS, LNER and early British Railways enthusiasts.

"I did enjoy going through this book a number of times to digest all the photos therein."

Bob Meanley - The LMS Society

This book comprehensively illustrates and describes the locomotives of the former LMS and LNER from Nationalisation until the end of steam on British Railways. It will be welcomed by LMS, LNER and early British Railways enthusiasts alike as it a feast of high quality photographs with comprehensive captions and details of the steam locomotives in this era. Many will enjoy seeing the many photographs that have not been published before gathered together in a single neat volume.

Tom Cole - Miniature Armoured Fighting Vehicles Association

"The book can be recommended for the excellence of its photographs"
