Book Description Irwell Press, Clophill, Bedfordshire, England, 2003. Laminated Pictorial Boards. Condition: New. No Jacket. First Edition. 76 pages proff ill b/w photos - This book celebrates a station, and no ordinary station at that. Edinburgh Waverley and its approaches provided a spectacular and immensely photogenic theatre for the cream of East Coast motive power and its less glamorous brethren. Historical information concerning the railway system has been kept to a minimum. That was covered by An Illustrated History of Edinburgh's Railways by W.A. C. Smith and Paul Anderson, published by Irwell Press in 1995, which also included detailed maps. Instead, Wonderful Waverley is a portrait in words and pictures of the Scottish capital's world famous station, its magnificent surroundings, the engines and trains which served it and the running sheds which were so crucial. Photographs range from the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s, with an emphasis on the first half of the 1950s. This thirty year period is just a cameo of a station which has been around for a century and a half, yet the locomotives portrayed represent a hundred years of railway history, from 'Pugs' built for Leith Docks in the early 1880s to the demise of the 'Deltics' on principal East Coast expresses in the early 1980s.
