MORE THAN 100 PAGES, COLOUR AND B/W TRACKS OF MY YEARS IS A MUST FOR MAYBACH FANS!

Tracks of My Years, by Adrian Curtis, is a powerfully evocative book about the author's love of railways and the Western Class 52 Diesel-Hydraulics. In this superb A4, hardback publication, which includes many unpublished photographs, Adrian takes the reader on a journey beginning in 1961 with the birth of the Westerns - just three years after his own arrival in the world. It is a book to touch the hearts of everyone with Maybachs, music and the 60s and 70s in their blood. You can almost taste the emotion as the author recounts the way his passion for the Western class finally took hold in the early 1970s. It's a Western book, you won't want to put down. 

Here's what a few readers have said about TOMY: 

"I picked up my copy of TOMY yesterday from the post office (been away on holiday), I have to say that this is by far the best book featuring the westerns that I have in my collection." Bob, Yorkshire.

"I have started to read Tracks of my Years and can inform you that I wanted to continue onto each new year and read it in one go, I truly could not put it down," Phil, Kettering.
