Late G.J. Churchward"s locomotive development on the Great Western Railway by K. J. Cook Download PDF EPUB FB2

Churchwards 2 cylinder Saint Class s were arguably one of the most important locomotive developments of the twentieth century. The seventy-seven members of the class were so successful that most of the other railway companies in this country used the same 2 cylinder formula in the design of their own mixed traffic locomotives.

Using many previously unpublished photographs from the Great Western Trust photographic collection, accompanied by informative captions, every member of the Class is illustrated. This book should appeal to those interested in the history of Great Western locomotive development as well as modellers of the Great Western and Western Region.
