The LMS Story

The London, Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) claimed to be the largest private enterprise concern in the British Empire. It was Britain's largest steam railway and the only one to operate in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as having two short stretches of line in the Irish Republic. It was the world's largest owner of railway hotels and the world's largest railway shipping operator.

Mainly a steam railway, it had a significant electric service out of Euston in London, and on Merseyside and Manchester. One of the leaders in diesel shunting locomotives, the company was a pioneer of using mechanical handling equipment, including large coaling towers.
The LMS was mainly a freight railway, but it was still able to boast the best railway carriages, even on suburban services, where there was more legroom than was offered by other companies.
Full of little-known facts, illustrated throughout and including a useful timeline, "The LMS Story" is the latest addition to this successful series.

The LMS Handbook : The London, Midland and Scottish Railway 1923-47

The London Midland & Scottish Railway was the largest of the Big Four railway companies to emerge from the 1923 grouping. It was the only one to operate in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as having two short stretches of line in the Irish Republic. It was also the world's largest railway shipping operator and owned the greatest number of railway hotels.
Mainly a freight railway, it still boasted the best carriages, and the work of chief engineer Sir William Stanier influenced the first locomotive and carriage designs for the nationalised British railways.

Packed with facts and figures as well as historical narrative, this extensively illustrated book is a superb reference source that will be of interest to all railway enthusiasts.

LMS Locomotive Design & Development : The Life and Work of Tom Coleman (Locomotive Portfolio)

In 1958 one of Britain`s greatest locomotive designers died without public fanfare or recognition, mourned only by his family. Yet William Stanier, arguably one of our greatest engineers and his leader, said of him that without his Chief Draughtsman all he achieved with the LMS would not have been possible.
How could such a man slip from our view and remain anonymous, although his Princess Coronations, Black 5s and 8Fs are regarded as three of the finest classes of locomotive ever built? And today many survive as stars to grace the ever growing preservation movement.

In reality, Tom Coleman was an intensely private and modest man who never sought recognition or commendation. His need for privacy may be one reason why his life has remained shrouded in mystery for so long, but finally his story has been slowly pieced together from a wide variety of sources, many previously untapped.
So now we can see for ourselves his great contribution to railway history and recognise his singular talents.

The LMS Turbomotive : From Evolution to Legacy

The last generation of steam-powered locomotives are often viewed as antiquated throw-backs to the Victorian era, which stayed in service well beyond their useful lives. In-fact, even in the twilight of the steam age, Britain was at the forefront of developing a new generation of steam power which could have changed the face of the railways.

William Stanier is known for revolutionising steam locomotive practice on the LMS, creating a modern locomotive fleet. He also explored the possibilities for next generation motive power to produce unquestionably Britain's most successful experimental locomotive of the 20th Century - the 'Turbomotive'.
It was the Ljungström brothers in Sweden who developed the non-condensing steam turbine locomotive for heavy freight work and in 1935 Stanier applied this design in a turbine variant of his famous 'Princess Royals'.

The Turbomotive's performance was such that it even had significant impact in the United States where the Baldwin Company used its core principles in a mighty turbine 6-8-6 for the Pennsylvania Railroad. This machine was arguably the most successful to use steam turbine power to explore the very limits of what was possible with a single large locomotive.

Back in England, the Turbomotive continued in service into British Railways' days, until in 1952 it was converted into a conventional machine, making it the country's most powerful express passenger locomotive of the day.
The irony is that its potential in that form was never to be realised as soon after re-entering service, the Turbomotive was destroyed in the Harrow & Wealdstone disaster.

The remarkable story of the Turbomotive is told here for the first time in book form, illustrated throughout with rare photographs and drawings. It is a fitting tribute to a unique, but ultimately ill-fated, locomotive from the pinnacle of the steam age.

The Turbomotive: Stanier's Advanced Pacific (Locomotive Portfolio)

Turbomotive was unique in Britain's railway history, and an experimental engine that proved successful but came too late to effect the direction of steam development or deflect the onset of diesel and electric locomotives.
It was the brainchild of two of the most influential engineers of the twentieth century - William Stanier of the LMS and Henry Guy of Metropolitan Vickers. They hoped that turbine power, which had already revolutionised ships propulsion and power stations, would do the same for the railways.

When Turbomotive appeared in 1935, she became a PR phenomenon at a time when commercial rivalry between the LMS and the LNER was reaching its height. Its launch at Euston in June was accompanied by a great fanfare and much publicity. Such was the interest in this 'revolutionary' idea that the engine would attract attention all her life.

Although producing good but not remarkable performances, she remained in service, plying her trade between London and Liverpool for longer than anyone predicted. Most expected a quick rebuild to conventional form, but the coming of war and lack of resources meant that she carried on until 1950 in turbine form.
Inevitably, change came when maintenance costs seemed likely to escalate and re-building seemed unavoidable. She re-appeared in August 1952, part Princess and part Coronation, but her new life was cut short by the disaster at Harrow in October.
Although many thought her repairable, she was scrapped to make way for another 'experimental' steam engine.

This book presents the compulsive and fascinating story of this remarkable locomotive, drawn from a wide variety of sources, many previously untapped and unpublished, including memories of the designers, the crew who drove her, accountants and hard-headed business men, PR teams, the press, the passengers and many more.
