Compiled from detailed notes taken since 1941, this slice of Glasgow life is the perfect companion to the popular Illustrated History of Glasgow's Railways, by the same authors. Very much personal observations, this is not just a close-up view of Glasgow trains but a look at life in the city from wartime to the end of steam in 1967.

It was an era when the railway figured so much more prominently in people's lives; where at need, a light engine would be despatched to fetch a doctor and yet the city's last regular steam working was, amazingly, ignored by all. These are snapshots in the life of a great city - snaking queues at Buchanan Street on Cup Final day, blasting ascents of Cowlairs bank from the smoke-wreathed depths of Queen Street, Christmas day at Glasgow Central, and inching journeys home in pea-souper fog and driving snow.
