This fascinating pocket book draws on numerous primary sources from the early days of the rail network through to the Big Four, British Railways and beyond to present a unique guide to the knowledge and skills required for locomotive drivers, engineers and firemen. Beginning with an introduction to steam from about 1890, the book outlines the rules of the rail network, locomotive management from driving to servicing, potential accidents, and the camaraderie of an engine driver’s life along with a wealth of practical advice and conditions of service for the men on the footplate. The Railwayman’s Pocket Book offers a unique insight into the age of steam that will appeal to all railway enthusiasts.

R H N Hardy worked on Britain’s railways for over forty years, serving his apprenticeship at Doncaster Locomotive Works and Running Shed between 1941–44, before becoming a shed master, locomotive engineer, divisional manager at King’s Cross and Liverpool stations and an Engineering and Research development adviser. He retired in 1982 with more than 60,000 miles of footplate experience on all classes of LNER, GC and GN engines. Richard is the author of four books and numerous articles, originally writing under the pseudonym of Balmore. He completed two autobiographical works, Steam in the Blood (1971) and Railways in the Blood (1985) as well as biographies of Beeching: Beeching: Champion of the Railway? (1989), and Bert Hooker: Bert Hooker, Legendary Railwayman (1994).
