Deltics (Out Soon)

“A Deltic’s gentle throb at the ‘country end’ of King’s Cross (while it waited for the ‘Right of Way’ to take her train northward) is a sound I shall never forget. It made traveling a pleasure for many years.” Sidney S. Skinner This book contains a collection of pictures of the whole Class, along with their Nameplates, all taken within the confines of King’s Cross compiled by the author, together with a brief summary. Most of these photos have never been published before.

Meet The Author

"He loved telling stories and had dozens of anecdotes about his life and the various adventures he had had – from being a gofer as a young lad for a major London Newspaper to spotting a piece of Fabergé come in, when he worked in the accounts department of Phillip’s Auctioneers. He held a variety of jobs working as a book-keeper for a lot of London businesses. He even helped a few to set up – including Mayco Travel and he helped to launch the career of a young fashion designer in the sixties although his office was tucked away at the back of the Ladies’ Changing area – but he just “closed his eyes” as he walked through and suffered. He grew up in the East End of London, but spent a great deal of time visiting friends in Sunderland, which he loved. He took his camera with him everywhere and as a youngster he was fascinated with Railway Engines, Deltics, Coaches and Buses. His books include many photos that have never been published before. "
