Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. LMS diesel shunters 7059-7068 were 0-6-0 diesel-electric shunters built by Armstrong Whitworth in 1936. Maker's numbers D54-D63. The diesel engine was an Armstrong-Sulzer 6LTD22 of 350 bhp at 875 rpm. There was a single Crompton Parkinson traction motor with a rating of 231 hp or 358 hp.

Michael Harvey's new book brings to its reader the excitement of trainspotting in the 1950s and 60s, the hobby's heyday. It was the advent of the famous Ian Allan ABC Locospotters books that really gave the hobby the impetus, as they gave transpotters all the information they required. Forget the Anorak sets out to provide the reader with a personal account of what the hobby entailed - teenagers roaming the railways of Britain, sleeping on deserted platforms on porters' trolleys, 'bunking' dimly lit depots and eluding capture, travelling hundreds of miles ona platform ticket, and stink bombs on the Underground. You'll be able to smell the steam, soot and unwashed socks, and taste the boiled egg sandwiches, the chips wrapped in newspaper and the hot jam doughnuts, all washed down with warm Tizer. Illustrated with Michael Harvey's own photographs and a selection of maps, Forget the Anorak will appeal to anyone who experienced the golden days of trainspotting, as well as to anyone interested in the social history of Britain after the Second World War.
