Our customer reviews

The description does not give this book justice. This book is the "black book" that was published for use by British Rail Locomotive Enginemen and Firemen. This reprint is complete and unabridged. It is full of technical information presented in a format that is understandable to anyone with a logical maindset. It contains both black and white and full colour illustrations to assist in describing the workings of a steam locomotive, and its operation. As has been decribed elsewhere, the diagrams are not as crisp as the original and is presumably something to do with the transfer of the original to modern publishing methods. Having said that, this book is an essential addition to any locomotive driver or fireman's bookcase, and is also great for teaching the basics of locomotive operation to anyone who wants to gain an understanding of it.show more
