The Steam Locomotive - An Engineering History

Books on railway history invariably start with the Stephenson's or with Richard Trevithick's locomotive of 1804, but the story begins much earlier with the development of steam engines for pumping out deep mines.

Ken Gibbs, a retired engineer who served his apprenticeship in the Swindon Works of British Railways, takes a more practical approach to railway history, using its engineering developments to tell the story of the railways. From the first ideas to the development of better metals, manufacturing, technology in wheel casting, improved boilers and valve gears, his book is a refreshingly different approach to the plethora of picture books showing branch lines in days past.

Ken's engineering background and love of railway technology gives us a book suited to the layman and engineer alike, explaining how each development made the railways better, faster or safer.
It took over 150 years to develop the steam locomotive from a basic boiler on wheels weighing a couple of tons to the magnificent express passenger and freight locomotives weighing in excess of 100 tons and capable of speeds over 120mph. Read how the steam locomotive developed from those early days to the last days of steam.

How Steam Locomotives Really Work

The authors, both railway experts, cover the design of locomotives, the many processes in the conversion of fuel to tractive effort, the dynamic characteristics of the locomotive as a vehicle, the braking equipment, and a host of other systems, major and minor, that make up a working locomotive. They also explain the reasons for running and maintenance practices.

Modern Locomotive Construction - The legendary Bible of Locomotive Building from 1892

Created in 1892 by J.G.A. Meyer, the former chief draftsman at the Grant Locomotive Works, "Modern Locomotive Construction" is one of the most in-depth documents to emerge from the age of steam. Regarded as "the Bible" of steam engines, it is replete with information about every aspect of locomotive building and maintenance.

This text can educate even the most learned railroader and answer questions you never even knew you had. Running over 660 pages, this book is an encyclopedic discussion of operating components including but not limited to cylinders, valve gears, frames, pistons, driving axles, main rods, throttle pipes and gear, spring gear, boilers, smoke stacks, sand boxes, trucks, tenders, and more.

Exceptionally well-written and richly illustrated, this book educated a generation of engineers and draftsman. Regarded as exceptionally rare, it's never been easy to lay your hands on this wonderful book, until now!
This paperback edition represents the first time Modern Locomotive Construction has been available in over 100 years.
