DAMAGED DUST JACKET INCLUDED
This fascinating locomotive identification volume, written by one of the country's leading locomotive authorities, describes and illustrates practically every type of steam, diesel and electric locomotive now or recently in service on U. S. and Canadian railroads.
It has been written in response to popular demand 'or an illustrated guide book that will provide the model maker with a single source of motive power information, that will supply the railfan with a handy -reference volume containing photographs and detailed data on just about every locomotive that he is apt to see on American railroads, and finally it is a basic book that professional railroaders will welcome as a convenient up-to-date survey of all types of modern motive power.
The contents of this extraordinary book are so arranged that anyone can instantly identify any locomotive he sees by noting its wheel arrangement and particular construction design. Not only does it identify the locomotive but it also describes noteworthy features peculiar to certain machines together with supplying operating and performance data as well as principal dimensions and characteristics of each locomotive pictured. Finally, it lists the railroads on which the locomotives are now or have recently been operated.
Because the steam locomotive is fast disappearing from the American railroad scene, the publishers feel that it is particularly appropriate that Mr. Lucas' fine guide book be issued at this time in order that railroad enthusiasts the country over can have a permanent record of all types of motive power in actual use during this transitional period.
