Locomotive Boilers for the Twenty-First Century
Following on from his first book The Design, Construction and Working of Locomotive Boilers, here Alan Haigh puts forward his thoughts on new boilers to keep preserved steam in action.
His major point is that all-welded boilers are now perfectly acceptable, but he then looks at various options for replacing boilers, from making ones with minimal changes, to radical redesigns with water wall fireboxes.
A huge amount of useful technical information, as well as many thought-provoking ideas. 64 pages, once again full of facts, formulae, graphs, drawings, and rather more B&W photos. Paperback.
