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.
