9789990720174: North American Steam Locomotives: The Berkshire and Texas Types

The 2-8-4 steam locomotive (and its cousin, the 2-10-4 or Texas type) were durable and versatile work horses that dominated their era because they could move heavy trains with lower fuel consumption yet maintain higher road speeds. In this through examination of the locomotives, the author details the particular engines working for each of 30 different railroads (including the Nacionales de Mexico), including photos and specifications as delivered for each road. The chapters reflect the remarkable diversity of work the engines performed across much of the continent. Illustrated throughout with large, high-quality black and white photos which are supplemented by Mike Pearsall's spirited watercolors. With complete roster of all North American locomotives of the described type. With decorative end papers. 191 pages.
