Steam in the 1950s : The Railway Photographs of Robert Butterfield Paperback / softback



Robert Butterfield had a lifelong passion for railways.

He devoted his career to working for British Railways and was a dedicated enthusiast, photographer and railway modeller.

He travelled extensively in the London Midland, Eastern, North Eastern and Scottish Regions and on these journeys accumulated a large collection of stunning photographs, often featuring his favourite classes: Princess Coronations, Royal Scots and Jubilees.

After forty-three years of service he spent his retirement happily chasing steam specials, particularly on the Carlisle to Settle line. Here Brian J. Dickson has compiled a beautiful collection of Robert Butterfield's railway photographs, providing a window into the past looking back at steam in the 1950s.
