About this Item

Beautiful set of this rare full set, issue #11867. Covers types of locomotives, their principles of operation, management, repair and maintenance; also the air brake, mechanical stokers, feed water heaters, superheaters, and the latest developments in the railway field. Signals and Signal Systems, Block Signal Rules, Air Brakes, Air Brakes and Train Air Signal Instruction, Hints on Locomotive Engineering. Hinges all strong, almost no visible wear. The only flaws I find are: Vol IV has a 1.5 X 1.5 inch light spot on one corner, Vol II was laid on a wet surface causing the back cover to be a lighter color (dampstain), no effect to text & images are available. 2290 pp. Profusely Illustrated with half-tones, diagrams & line cuts of Vintage Trains & parts. Very heavy set, International buyer will pay more S&H & should inquire before buying. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 004500
