For nearly one hundred and fifty years the steam locomotive was the workhorse of the world's railroads but today its evocative sound, its glistening brass and the smell of hot oil have almost disappeared, only to be replaced by the mutter and reek of the diesel and the smooth efficiency of electricity.
Classic Steam looks back at the fascination of the steam locomotive --the colourful engines of Britain where it all began, the great locomotives which headed such trains as the Orient Express over the European mainland, the huge monsters and great trains of North America and the development of steam in Africa, Asia and Australasia.
Supplemented with an abundance of colour and black and white photographs, this book looks at the story not only of the classic steam engines of a century and a half ago but also the odd and the unusual.
