Since the dawn of privatisation in the mid-1990s, train operating companies have often been forced to call upon additional rolling stock to keep timetabled services running, be it due to unreliability, incidents or just not enough trains to meet demand. This extra capacity has usually come in the form of loco-hauled trains, these featuring a diverse array of locomotives and coaches with the hire period varying from days to years.
This lavishly illustrated publication will take a photographic look back at the past 25 years of such workings, beginning with the Welsh Valleys and running right through to the last hurrah of the recently ended Fife Circle operation.
A must for all rail enthusiasts and modellers looking for real-life accuracy in their projects.
