The 5AT Project Feasibility Study
Written by a number of the senior members of The 5AT Project, plus David Wardale and L.D. Porta, this publication effectively is the ‘Business Plan’ for the Project, and was largely written in 2009 & 2010 before being used in presentations to possible corporate backers.
By its nature it contains less technical ‘meat’ than the ‘Design Calculations’, although there is still a considerable amount, but it does describe the concept in depth, complete with costings, estimated performance details, plus how the basic design could be adapted and developed for non-tourist work outside Europe.
A fascinating and illuminating read for anyone who believes that steam can be taken further, and returned to the world’s railways. 240 pages, numerous mainly colour illustrations, charts and drawings. Paperback.
