9780711012806: Steam Motive Power Depots

Fascinating examination of the whys and wherefores of the railway depots and sheds that once served British steam locomotives, providing a clear look at how steam railways "really" worked. Chapters cover how coal was loaded onto the engines, disposal of ashes, water for the boilers, repairing boilers, inspection and maintenance, depot and shed layouts, personnel, breakdowns, and snow plowing. There is also a section on preserved depots such as Steamtown in Carnforth (now closed) and the former Great Western depot at Didcot (now the Didcot Railway Centre). Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and diagrams. 128 pages.
