From the early years of steam power to today's awe-inspiring high-speed passenger trains, this book spans nearly two centuries of locomotive history. It covers the first designs of the 1830s, early North American freight trains, the golden age of railways from 1900-1950, the crossover from steam power to diesel and electric, and how the locomotive was transformed into the superior passenger and freight-pulling power of today. Bringing us to the present, the latest developments are highlighted, including the modern wonders that are Europe's Eurostar and the Japanese bullet train. This definitive history of locomotive technology from the 1830s to 2000 charts the development of locomotive design throughout the world, including Britain, the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, India, China, Japan and the Pacific Rim, and includes detailed specification boxes for over 100 key locomotive designs. With insightful text and 700 photographs, the book is a guide that will appeal to all railway enthusiasts. *
