Brian Hollingsworth (au); Arthur Cook (au). Lavishly illustrated & technically detailed, this volume covers the development & working histories of 150 of the world’s most famous & unique locomotives. Beginning its coverage in 1879, the book describes a series of 150 electric & diesel locomotives, such as the remarkable TGV electric train from France, which today carries its passengers at speeds of up to 162 mph. Including a number of modern hybrids, such as gas-turbine trainsets, the book goes on to review the development of modern railpower towards the 1990s & beyond. The exceptional text has great historical & technical value, & there is a series of 75 beautifully drawn, unique color illustrations.
