The fifth in a series with the simple old fashioned aim to showcase top quality photographs reproduced at the largest possible size, in order to celebrate some of the best-loved steam classes. Full-page shots are presented in a landscape format and come with comprehensive captions. The emphasis throughout is on the engines in service and the book has been arranged in chapters in chronological order starting with the batches of the class as built. The final five chapters show the engines at work from 1935 onwards on the principal routes where they were used. All engines in the class are covered at least once.
Second in a series which has but a simple aim, 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.

Latest in the Book Of series, presenting a comprehensive history and full sequence of works visits together with several photographs of every individual engine. A handsome locomotive, firmly in the Gresley tradition of handsome designs and that is certainly true of the LNER B17 4-6-0s. Good engineering should look good, and Gresley never set his hand to a design which looked less than very good. Again certainly true.
