The glory of the steam train is its fantastic variety: its attraction a union of the practical and the beautiful, engineering and aesthetics working in harmony to achieve a mechanical balance satisfying to both eye and intellect.
In its basic operation, the steam locomotive is marvellously simple. A fire, a boiler, cylinders, wheels and a chimney feed and regulate each other's efforts in an integrated cycle. Yet this very simplicity permits endless refinement and adaptation, so that engines built for widely diverse operating conditions, following distinctive national or company traditions, were given their final form by the idiosyncracies of individual designers. Streamlined flyer, lumbering freight, giant articulated or delicate rack: the contrasts are obvious, the similarities startling.
Steam Trains captures the unique appeal of its fascinating subject in contemporary illustrations and photographs from around the world, and in a commentary which traces the origins of the railways, the growth of the national systems, the divergence of design trends and the vital innovations. that have shaped its development.
