Short Desription

This is a comprehensive dictionary of locomotive names for railway enthusiasts. As well as alphabetically listing engine names, the author provides details of the number, the class or wheel arrangement, the date of introduction, and the identity of the owning railway company. Incidental details—including the gauge, changes in ownership, secondary names, and nicknames—are also recorded, as well as, where possible, the location of the engine if it has been preserved. Photographs of some of the most famous and some of the most unusual locomotives are provided, along with concise definitions of the technical terms employed and notes on the various classes of locomotive concerned. The book covers named engines from the pioneering days of steam to the high-tech locomotives of the 20th century.
