This illustrated volume -- full of technical details on more than 300 of the world's greatest locomotives -- is sure to please even the most knowledgeable railfans.Tracing the development of railpower around the world, the book begins with the age of steam, describing a host of passenger locomotives that powered the world's first great railway boom, before going on to describe the most significant locomotives developed during the 150-plus years that followed -- each illustrated with a selection of archival photography and specially commissioned color drawings.
