Historical Introduction
Colour Illustrations
Index
The steam railways of Britain represented a colourful era in the history of inland transport. In the companion volume, The Pocket Encyclopaedia of British Steam Locomotives, 0. S. Nock traced the gradual development of design style, railway evolution, and the changing fashions in ornamentation. In this new volume he not only describes a further selection of fascinating locomotives, but also discusses the carriages forming the trains they hauled, and such important accessories of travel as dining and sleeping cars, and the travelling post office.
Some superb craftsmanship was put into the building of railway carriages of the Victorian and Edwardian epochs, and many of these are illustrated in the colour section of this book. A familiar feature of adornment of both locomotives and carriages was the coat-of-arms of the Company, many of which were exquisite little pieces in themselves, and are featured in the book.
A characteristic feature of steam railways was the old semaphore signals-picturesque in their individuality and detail, and grandly imposing in their massed arrays outside large stations and junctions. The 96 pages of coloured illustrations are again by Clifford and Wendy Meadway.
