This fascinating book should actually be called "The Use of the Steam Locomotive Around the World." For each of 48 countries, from Austria to Turkey, it outlines the development of railroads in the country and the use of steam locomotives there, providing detailed data on the type and number of engines. (Note: the book does not cover the United States, Canada, or Great Britain.) Illustrated throughout with more than 1000 black and white photographs, maps, tables, sketches, and drawings. The author has also provided a comprehensive introduction which examines the genesis of this mechanical marvel; the experiments by pioneers that produced the early railway engines; and the advent of new engineering designs, technology, and devices which eventually enhanced the locomotive's efficiency, safety, and general performance. This treatise provides a valuable historical reference relating to the world-wide utilization of the legendary railroad steam engine, from the early nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century. 674 pages with index.
