The Victorian Steam Locomotive - Its Design & Development 1804-1879

Regular price £18.99

First published in 1879, this book was identified as a 'lost' publication by Peter Waterman who has provided the introduction to this fascinating work.

The original manuscript was published in the year of the Tay Bridge Disaster and the Zulu War in South Africa and it looks in detail at the history and development of the steam locomotive from 1804-1879. It contains examples of famous types of machines from the past and up to the most contemporary pieces of railway locomotive technology.

With a selection of quality drawings and engineering diagrams, as well as rare photographs from this remarkable period of industrial change, The Victorian Steam Locomotive is a timely and long-overdue insight into the thinking of Victorian engineers, lovingly restored here for today's lovers of steam.

Hardback, 176 pages, numerous black & white illustrations

ISBN: 9781473823235
