Building a London and North Western Railway Jumbo, The Bill Finch Portfolio of Locomotive Details
Bill Finch's acclaimed Portfolio of Locomotive Details is based on about 43 pages of very detailed dimensioned sketches prepared by Bill for the construction of his prize-winning 5in gauge model of the 'Improved Precedent' Class loco Miranda, now housed in the National Railway Museum.
There are two further pages of published engineering drawings, Crewe Works General Arrangements of the loco and the standard Webb 18 gallon tender and several further pages of photographs of the model and of original locos.
This valuable work has long been out of print, but thanks to developments in digital printing it is now possible to produce short runs of high-quality printing at very moderate cost. Save for some very minor corrections. Bill's sketches and the text are unchanged.
Most books are dispatched within two working days of receipt of cleared payment.
