How about the four volume RCTS book on the Great Northern Railway in the East Midlands?

Far Down the Shining Line - The Midland Railway in Nottingham Volume IV by C. J. Perkins & R. Padgett. Published by the authors in 2004.

 

A rather 'arty' title which fits in with a book of mainly locomotive portraits rather artily laid out.

 

I've seen one or two of the earlier volumes but not acquired them. This one, I don't recall ever seeing in a bookshop and only came across it on Ebay.  I'm not sure how easily obtainable it might be.
