Originally published as a collection of ten short stories, Steaming into the North West has been developed to include a further ten tales from the rails. Now taking us back to the very early days of steam, in the 1800s, these stories about life on the great Premier Line provide an entertaining and often thought-provoking insight into the tough, physical work that being an engineman entailed. With early engines having no cab to speak of, life on the rails was open to all the elements. Danger came readily, from signalmen not paying attention to travelling through long, polluted tunnels. Nevertheless, work on the railways was something to be proud of and, as with all the books in Michael Clutterbuck's Steaming Into series, this is clearly portrayed through the cast of characters, attention to detail, and more than a little humour.
