This compendium edition brings together in hardback two previously published volumes from OPC, Mendips Engineman and Footplate over the Mendips by the well-known Somerset & Dorset Railway author Peter Smith. Comprising fireman Peter Smith's reminiscences of 10 years' locomotive duties over the famous S&D route across the Mendips from Bath to Bournemouth, plus tales and anecdotes from former S&D drivers and firemen, this volume brings back to life the steam age on the S&D.
The text is supported by over 100 black and white photographs, the vast majority of which were taken by the doyen of Somerset & Dorset railway photographers, Ivo Peters.
Released to coincide with the 21st anniversary of the closure of the S&D on 6th March 1966, this combined edition of S&D reminiscences forms a fitting tribute to the enginemen of the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway.
