A book jointly published by two retired ex-WR apprentices who witnessed the building and heavy maintenance of all the hydraulic classes. Old Oak Common, Laira and Swindon Works all feature in this fascinating inside story. Mike Woodhouse started visiting Swindon Woprks as a lad in the 1950's and worked there from December 1959 until closure in 1986. Graham Howell started at the works in 1965 and the memories of being closely involved with the hydraulics throughout their working lives makes for a good read. 144pages A5 softback.
