Synopsis: Following the success of the author's British Railways Steam Locomotive Allocations, published 2011, Hugh Longworth produced a complementary volume which gave the complete allocation history for every BR steam locomotive from 1948 to 1968, and this detailed reference book proved extremely successful. This has now been updated to provide an even more comprehensive approach to the subject, and includes the following unique features: Full allocation history for each engine Thumbnail diagram for each class Full shed names listed in each entry (not just codes) Full shed recoding shown where relevant. A visual indication showing length of time at each shed Colour used to differentiate the regions Names shown All withdrawal dates shown Full coverage 1948-1968 (not just 1950 on as most other lists) The first book concentrated on snap shot views (three year intervals), giving the reader overviews of the subject, while this new volume focusses on individual engines, and tracks their wanderings in detail, giving the reader a complete history of each locomotive in the 20 years of steam on BR.
