Requiem for Steam

The Railroad Photographs of David Plowden

By David Plowden.

Cloth with dust jacket, 12x11, 140 tritone photographs. 2010.

"Stunning photographs by a master photographer documenting the last of the steam locomotives.”

"As a child, David Plowden was given a box camera, and before long he began to photograph railroad trains. As he matured and started on what would become a lifetime in photography, trains - specifically steam locomotives - became one of his passions, and then they were eclipsed by modern diesel locomotives.

"It is our good fortune that Plowden was on the scene at the end, documenting what would become this book, his reverent tribute to the steam era."
