Fife's Last Days of Colliery Steam Book Summary/Review:

In 1947 almost six million tons of coal were produced by the 32 pits in Fife and almost 20,000 worked in the industry in the Kingdom. Integral to the effort were 57 steam locomotives, many of which are seen at work in this selection of photos from the 1960s and 1970s. The text is rich and detailed and contains special sections on the Fife Coal Company and the Wemyss Private Railway.
