Off Northampton Shed

The Reminiscences of an LMS Fireman
Derek Mutton

Hardback  -  186 pages  -  £29.95


The author became a cleaner at Northampton shed in September 1943 following his fifteenth birthday. He remained there throughout his footplate career which took him on adventures over the former LNWR lines in the area, in the final stages of the Second World War and throughout the lean years of rationing which followed.

Wonderfully observed, often humorous and extremely well written, this captivating account evokes much of the atmosphere of the run-down railway in post-war Britain.
