The development and heyday of the working steam road locomotive and takes a look at the many derivatives designed to economise industrial and agricultural processes, previously performed with archaic and outdated methods.
Using contemporary colour photographs and rarely seen black and white archive images, it looks at the sheer power of the heavy haulage engine and the extraordinary loads and tonnage they were capable of pulling over British roads.
This new eBook celebrates the giants of the road in a golden age of British industrial heritage, when this country’s engineering excellence was once recognised the world over.
The book also includes an affectionate tribute to legendary broad- caster Fred Dibnah, who was a massive traction engine enthusiast and championed the steam preservation movement throughout his life.
