The Design, Construction and Working of Locomotive Boilers
Back in a third edition, this is an technical treatise on the locomotive boilers latterly used on British Railways.
The author is a boiler designer with 38 years of practical experience under his belt, albeit largely not on locomotive boilers.
The technical data will be useful for anyone designing boilers, although the author’s conclusion - that LNER boilers were the best, and those for the B1 class 4-6-0s were ‘best of the best’, might not meet with universal approval.
112 pages full of facts, formulae, graphs, drawings and some B&W photos. Paperback.
