Welcome to the new Hellfire Series of books produced by Visions International. They are quite simply about nostalgia and will feature all manner of subjects, with the whole premise being to rekindle fond memories of what many would call ‘The Glory Days’.
The English Electric Type 4 (Class 40) was introduced in 1958. Between then and the final withdrawal thirty years later, they worked most if not all types of trains. This book looks back at the locos from the late 1960’s through to the end in 1988.
The book is split into the following chapters:
Pre-TOPS; Down The Coast; Freight; Green Goddesses; Depots; Charters; Going Solo; Works; Passenger and Departmentals.
A stunning selection of photos, mainly from the Ireland family, will bring back many memories of these big beasts in action.
