Southern, LNER and Late Arrivals 48634-48775

Concluding volume in the longstanding 'Book of' series, in FIVE PARTS to adequately cover the vast number of locomotives involved.

In this fifth part are the rest of the locomotives turned out by the Southern and the LNER, together with the curious 'Late Arrivals'rescued as wrecks from the Sands of the Nile and taken on by BR, as late as 1957.



The Story So Far:

  • Part 1: Pre-War Engines 48000-48125

  • Part 2: Wartime Engines 48126-48297

The Joy of the Jinties: The 3F 0-6-0Ts of the LMS and BR, 1924-1967  Part 1: 47260-47339

IN STOCK


The Joy of the Jinties: The 3F 0-6-0Ts of the LMS and BR, 1924-1967 Part 1: 47260-47339

Price: 19.95

Quantity:

The well known LMS 'Jinty' 0-6-0Ts originally known as the 'standard shunting tanks' came to number over 400, built over the years 1924-1931.

The origin of the name is subject to various theories but in effect is lost in antiquity. The Tri-ang model of a Jinty, the famous 47606, was one of the best selling OO scale toy/models of all time and was often the first engine encountered by small boys who went on to enthuse over locomotives and railways for the rest of their lives.

The new Jinties flooded across the LMS and through to the middle 1960s could be found labouring daily the length of the land; pilots at the great stations, from Euston to New Street to Preston to Carlisle, and or pottering in remote sidings. There was an endless variety of trip workings and local freights, ambling the length of a branch or collecting and delivering wagons to a series of outlying yards.

A particular sphere of working the Jinties made their own was the transfer freight, a Victorian mode of working lasting effectively to the end of steam. Every city abounded in the work, from London to Glasgow, with Carlisle being a particularly glorious, example. They long survived the onset of diesel shunters and were only finally extinguished in 1967.

Lest the Jinty be remembered only as a ’shunter’ it can be noted that plenty of passenger work came their way at first. Easily the most remarkable was their employment on GN suburban workings including the main line, cheek by jowl with racing Gresley Pacifics.

A Jinty truly was a Joy.

A Celebration of  LMS Coronation Pacifics

A Celebration of LMS Coronation Pacifics

Price: 25.95

By John Jennison -

978-1-911262-36-7

The first in a series which has but a simple aim, that is to use top quality photographs reproduced at the largest possible size to celebrate some of the best-loved steam classes. Full-page shots are presented in a landscape format and are backed up by comprehensive captions.

What better place to start then than the Stanier Coronation Pacifics of the LMS? The emphasis throughout is on the engines in service and the book has been arranged in chapters in chronological order starting with the four main variations of the class as built, followed by the post-war de-streamlined engines.

The final three chapters show the Coronations at work in the 1950s and 1960s on each of the principal routes where they were used, ending with the final few months of 1964.

All engines in the class are covered at least once. The pictures have been selected from the collections of Rail-Online and Brian Stephenson’s Rail Archive Stephenson and include many taken by Jim Carter and Bill Anderson. Jim was a railwayman based at Patricroft which gave him access to locations in the north west not available to other photographers. Bill Anderson took some of the finest pictures ever taken in this country as the engines worked over Shap and Beattock.

By John Jennison -

ISBN 978-1-911262-34-3


The Ivatt Class 2 tanks and moguls were amongst the last new LMS designs and although intended for secondary duties to replace a variety of ancient pre-grouping specimens, they incorporated all of the refinements developed over the previous decade and honed by Ivatt on his post-war Black Fives.


The two classes were developed together, using the same boiler, sharing as many components as possible and they were very much complementary. Operationally, they worked mostly in different areas and on different duties and hence the story of the tender version is covered separately in the Book of the Ivatt 2-6-0s.


There was no class that was so immediately and universally accepted by enginemen. Not only did they welcome both the tender and tank versions with open arms, "they worshipped the very rails they stood on".


The 2-6-2Ts were really the last small tank locomotive designed for Britain’s railways; the BR Standard Class 2 in the 84000 series being merely a slightly modified version. Their light axle loading meant that they could go almost anywhere on the system and they certainly did that. They operated throughout the Southern Region, from Kent to Cornwall, as well as almost everywhere on their native LMS; the only area where they did not work at all was Scotland.


Complements the immediately preceding Book of the Ivatt 2-6-0s.

The Book of the Stanier Three Cylinder 2-6-4Ts 42500-42536

Price: 29.95

Quantity:

The LMS employed innumerable 2-6-4Ts, evolving from parallel boiler Fowler engines through updated Stanier taper boiler versions through to Fairburn’s final development. Between them they amounted to over 600 in total.

The first Stanier engines were wholly different in having three cylinders; moreover they were (most unusually) restricted to one particular stretch of line. Apart from the war years when they were all temporarily transferred away, they could always be found working passenger services over the former London Tilbury & Southend system from Fenchurch Street to Southend and Shoeburyness, until ousted by electrification in 1962.

As the information board alongside the preserved 2500 in the National Railway Museum at York pronounces: ‘Possibly the finest suburban tank engines that ran in this country’.

As the LMS Press Release explained at the time, the newest LMS 2-6-0s, though of small size and light weight, incorporated ‘every modern development which has been found successful on the larger main line types.’ They had self-cleaning smokeboxes, manganese steel axlebox liners, rocking grates and hopper ashpans. Externally, the high running plate and outside cylinders contrasted with the rather ancient looking large diameter chimney. The tender cab and inset tanks were designed for tender-first operation.

The Class 2 moguls and the contemporaneous Class 2 2-6-2Ts were amongst the last new LMS designs and although intended for secondary duties, they incorporated (just like the Press Release said!) all of the refinements developed over the previous decade and honed by Ivatt on his post-war Black Fives. The two classes were designed together, sharing as many components as possible, using the same boiler, and they were very much complementary.

The Book of the Ivatt Class 2 2-6-0s as you’d expect follows the series customary format; detailed essay as to provenance, development, historical content, tables of works histories and allocations, photographs of every loco.

Latest in the longstanding ‘Book Of’ series, in FIVE PARTS to adequately cover the vast number of locomotives involved.

In this third part are the locomotives that formed the first tranche of the 8Fs as a British ‘War Locomotive’ built at various works to Government edict. As the title indicates and as might be expected, they were built by the LMS but the first Swindon examples also began to emerge, from 8400 onwards.

Part One detailed those 8Fs built by/for the LMS for its own use – 8000-8125 in the 1930s with no thought then of them becoming a British ‘war locomotive’ though indeed some did go abroad.

Part Two concerns firstly those engines built by Crewe and North British for the LMS, 8126-8225 which never went abroad and secondly the locos built at Ministry of Supply/War Department behest and loaned to the LMS/GWR, 8226-8297.

The life, times and adventures of each (sometimes quite exotic in the case of the latter) is recorded under the individual loco, as with previous ‘Books Of’...
