About this title


Nothing evokes the exhilarating feeling of power and nostalgia than the sight of a majestic and powerful steam train coursing up a mountain pass, steam billowing from its engine. Arranged chronically, the book charts the history of the development of locomotives, detailing the early British innovations in steam; the Battle of the Gauges; the American Mikados, Shays, Switchers and the Record Breakers, the early Canadian freight trains, European mountain power, and the enduring steam locomotive of India and South America. Written by world experts in the field and illustrated with over 400 photographs and artwork, this exhaustive reference also provides specification boxes and comprehensive technical and performance data.

About the Author:

Colin Garratt is both a world-renowned authority and author on locomotives and a professional railway photographer. He has written and illustrated over 40 books on steam and rail.
