Train Shed Cyclopedia #82 Boilers (Part 3) from the 1919 Locomotive Cyclopedia. 64 Full-size Pages reprinted from the Original Edition. At one time or another, almost any kind of rolling equipment can be found in the Train Shed at any major rail terminal. When searching for a name for an open-ended series of books about locomotives, rail and passenger cars, and other information of interest to rail fans and modelers, the concept of the Train Shed seemed to cover almost any topic we might present. Hence the title of this series.
While the text and illustrations in the various issues will come from a variety of sources, they will have at least two things in common. One, each subject will be carefully selected for usefulness. Two, every page will be reproduced from an authentic, original railroad publication in the Newton K. Gregg collection or on loan from another collection. The original will be identified by publisher, date and author (if applicable). Selections of pages will be noted, as will any changes in size of reproduction from the original.
On the outside back cover are titles in print or in preparation. Suggestions for other subjects are welcome: we aim to include in our Train Shed all subjects in large enough demand. By excerpting parts of the original books, instead of printing them in their entirety, we can maintain flexibility and variety, and reproduce valuable works for all to enjoy.
