Paperback: 196 pages

Subject: Transportation Trains

Over 100 superb colour illustrations by the author of over 100 books for the railway enthusiast. The railway engineer and well respected author O. S. Nock produced two particular bestsellers, his two original Blandford Pocket Encyclopaedias, covering the British Steam Locomotives and British Steam Railways. The stunning hand drawn illustrations portray the history of steam together with the carriages, rolling stock, signals and railway coats of arms. Each page details the fashions, craftsmanship, excitement and a joy of nostalgia. Here is Hawksworth's 'County' Class 4-6-0 of 1945 on GWR, the final development of the classic Churchward two-cylinder locomotive with inside Stephenson link locomotion. There is approximately two entries per page, but the entire colour section occupies pages 13 to 108 in this pocket-sized handbook plus line drawings. Companion to code 84095 Steam Locomotives
