9781906419707: Fowler's Fury: The Story of a Unique British Steam Locomotive

For the first time, the story of Fury is put in context with other similar experiments in the story of steam worldwide; the story commences with the strengths and weaknesses of the new Royal Scot design, the development of the high-pressure boiler, and the continuation of these trails after the fatal accident at Carstairs. Conceived as a genuine attempt at increasing the efficiency of the steam locomotive, the result may perhaps be described as an attempt too far, pushing technology beyond what was feasible at the time, although such was not known back then. Retired engineer Ian Carney has spent many years fascinated by this one particular engine, gathering hitherto unpublished information that will throw a totally new light on what has been published in the past. This engrossing new title includes a variety of illustrations, many previously unseen, accompanied by plans and diagrams. This new story of steam experimentation will appeal to both the enthusiast and historian.
