Deltics the Final Roar


Alastair McLean

Amberley Publishing

978 1 4456 0098 7


A second helping of pictures from Alastair McLean, following on from Deltics the Last Year published in 2005. This book is similar in being a 128-page softback A5 production.

It is split into nine chapters, with the majority of the images from Scotland. Most of the images are good, and of a better standard that the previous tome, with some especially pleasing views taken on sheds.

Again there are a few too many instances of different angles of the same train, and also a lot of use of approaching and of going away shots of the same trains which, I would argue, is not the best use of the pages.

Captions are good, with interesting information on many. A nice book that Deltic fans should like. (PD)
