The Miniature Locomotives of David Curwen (Last Copies)

This product is currently sold out.

Over a fifty-year period David Curwen has built almost 50 miniature locomotives, steam and diesel, designed three dozen more for other builders, as well as two miniature passenger liners, Not surprisingly he had little time left for record keeping, and his biography (above) is a tad short on details of all he had built, an omission which this book more than corrects. Here are details of no less than 86 miniature locomotives (and one narrow gauge) which David has had a hand in, only one of which is known to have been scrapped, and it also includes details of the railways David's firm also operated, and other additional material to David's autobiography. Together these book are an excellent record of the work of this most prolific of builders. 118 pages. 146 photos, many in colour. Paperback.
