The Diary Of Thomas Baron


This new publication is based on the daily diary that Thomas Baron kept for 6 years, which documents the locomotives that he worked upon and the places he travelled to. It not only provides information on the workings he participated in, but also provides an insight into the working conditions and long hours that employees of the time worked.

The publication is illustrated by many photographs of the period and also by several superb paintings of the period from the renowned artist Gerald broom. Period maps are also used to supplement the information in the text.
