Author John Hutchings first became interested in Sentinel vehicles in 1963 when a friend purchased a Super -Sentinel road steam tractor for preservation. This interest expanded to embrace involvement in the preservation of several Sentinel steam locomotives, together with the accumulation of official literature with a view to publishing a history of Sentinel’s railway products. This objective took a major step forward in 1984 when contact was made with a number of former Sentinel employees and access gained to official records and drawings. Further research over the ensuing 30 years has resulted in the publication of this book, the most detailed history of Sentinel locomotives and railcars yet attempted.

Hardback with dust jacket, 348 pages, black & white and colour photographs, drawings
