LNWR Wagons, Volume Three
The final volume in a series of books, the first part of which was published as far back as 2001. Seventeen years on and despite inexorable demography, the subject retains a fair bit of interest, I hope(!) This final volume includes extensive coverage of the multifarious brake vans, in many ways the most interesting and distinctive wagons of any line, together with coal, coke, hoppered wagons, departmental wagons, rail and ballast wagons and tramcar trollies. The LNWR was arguably the most significant of the pre-grouping companies, moving huge tonnages of freight, and these books well illustrate what a complex and effective system was built up. This volume also features an interesting and detailed feature on the new tranship shed built at Crewe in 1901, an interesting and early example of the "hub" idea that now sees so many HGVs flying up and down the motorway network in the UK. Ropes and sheets are also featured and finally the book includes a comprehensive index to all three volumes in the series.
