Product Description
How to get locomotives round sharp curves challenged engineers from the earliest days of railways.This profusely illustrated book is intended as a readable narrative rather than a definitive history.Apart from Fairlies and Garratts,it looks at such fascinating locomotives as Mallets,Kitson-Meyers and Shays that have a lasting appeal to historians,photographers and modellers.The approach is worldwide and embraces working conditions that range from tropical paradise through the battlefields of World War One to high mountains of unimaginable severity.
