Third in a series which has but one 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.
Third in a series to record in colour and black and white the prototype origins and production lives of the first British Railways diesel locomotives, from halting beginnings in the 1950s to (sometimes) premature ends.
Available from the publisher or selected W H Smith, Sainsburys, Tescos, Asda and Waitrose High Street shops.
