Abstract:

"This is a comprehensive history of locomotive technology from the 1950s to the present day, shown in over 300 photographs. It is a pictorial encyclopedia of the most influential and famous trains of recent times, from the working steam trains of China to the Bullet Train and Eurostar. It is a stunning visual guide with detailed specifications for over 50 key locomotive designs. It explores the changing design of the locomotive, from the older trains still in use today to the latest models of Europe and the Far East. It features both long-running steam-powered engines, as well as the electric and diesel trains. It includes trains from Britain, North and South America, the Middle East, India, China, the Pacific Rim, Australasia and Africa. This comprehensive encyclopedia features some of the most influential, famous and beautifully designed trains of the last 50 years. With examples taken from Britain - including Eurostar - Europe, the former Soviet Union, North and South America, the Middle East, India, China, the Pacific Rim, Australasia and Africa, the book presents a complete history of global locomotive technology. Detailed specification boxes list each train's builder, client, gauge, class, axle arrangement, dimensions, rating and speed. Packed with more than 300 dynamic photographs and illustrations, this volume will appeal to train lovers and trainspotters the world over"--Publisher's description.
