About this title:

Synopsis: Mike Esau's well known and fondly remembered Steam into Wessex, first published in 1971, is regarded as a classic book of railway photography on the final years of steam on the main line from Waterloo to Weymouth in the 1960s. The photographs captured perfectly the atmosphere of the era, showing the now vanished infrastructure of the steam railway - stations, signalling as well as the human side of the railway staff at work and the passengers. The appeal of Mike Esau's photographs goes beyond just recording events as he is able to evoke a mood and atmosphere to recapture that time in the mind of the reader. This new book by Mike Esau is an outstanding collection of photographs from the steam era up to July 1967 and provides the perfect epitaph to a long vanished era. The pictures are a mixture of black and white and colour photographs which are arranged in order geographically from Waterloo to Weymouth and include some coverage of lines joining or associated with the main line, for example Pirbright Junction to Alton and Winchester Junction, Brockenhurst branch, Ringwood loop, Swanage and Portland to Easton branches etc. Strong's brewery at Romsey, so much a feature of the railway landscape of the time with signs that could be seen alongside the main line to Bournemouth such as at Micheldever and which have been revived by the Mid Hants Railway at Alton and Alresford, is revealed as an important part of the picture.
