Over a period of 150 years, Britain's railway companies employed a fascinating variety of steam locomotives. From the streamlined flyers of the 1930s to freight workhorses and dock tanks, Classic British Steam Locomotives celebrates that variety. Within its four sections, detailed profiles of 85 classes encompass the story of the best of British steam. It begins with the pioneers of the early- to mid- 1800s and the revolution in power and efficiency that characterized the turn of the century - a period that also saw the art of locomotive design reach its ornate and elegant zenith. The record-breakers of the 1920s and 1930s are assessed, along with the engines of war that performed heroically during the 1940s. The work of the visionary, but controversial, Oliver Bulleid is examined, as are the post-war standard classes that gave to the story of British steam the lamentably brief coda. The key facts and figures about each design are tabled, and introductory overviews convey the historical and technical background to each period. A comprehensive glossary, and a wealth of of detailed illustrations complete a survey that embraces steam's first, its fastest, and a host of the greatest locomotives ever to run on rails.
