Latest in the longstanding ‘Book Of’ series, in FIVE PARTS to adequately cover the vast number of locomotives involved.
Part One detailed those 8Fs built by/for the LMS for its own use – 8000-8125 in the 1930s with no thought then of them becoming a British ‘war locomotive’ though indeed some did go abroad.
Part Two concerns firstly those engines built by Crewe and North British for the LMS, 8126-8225 which never went abroad and secondly the locos built at Ministry of Supply/War Department behest and loaned to the LMS/GWR, 8226-8300. The life, times and adventures of each (sometimes quite exotic in the case of the latter) is recorded under the individual loco, as with previous ‘Books Of’..
All the usual works histories and allocations are here for every loco; liveries and tender varieties, experimental episodes and every other facet of these mightily impressive 2-8-0s, which survived to the very last days of BR steam.
