In particular, Eric Oldham looks at Crewe and Doncaster stations/works, MPDs in general, along with steam on the Woodhead route, pre/post electrification The photographs include behind-the-scenes views of locomotive sheds, depots, freight, and passenger traffic plus some dramatic station portraits.  Very Good/No Jacket
