Steam's Lament: Bulleid's Merchant Navy, Q1, Leader & Other Works (Strathwood)

1 In Stock

An album of high quality black & white photographs illustrating some of Oliver Bulleid’s more controversial locomotive classes built for the Southern Railway.

The book illustrates every one of the Merchant Navy Pacifics in both original and rebuilt condition, together with a photograph of every one of the forty Q1s and all three of the Leaders that were built. Also included are his 500hp 0-6-0 shunter 11001, the 350hp 0-6-0 shunters, the 10201-10203 main line diesels and also the Bulleid/Raworth electric locomotives 20001-20003.

The selection of photographs encompasses many details and variation in liveries, as well as showing the locomotives in action, on shed and in close up. The images are reproduced at a good size afforded by the wide landscape format and are accompanied by well researched and informative captions.

Steam’s Lament – Bulleid’s Merchant Navy, Q1, Leader and Other Works features photographs from many different sources, including Colour Rail, Rail Photoprints and the Transport Treasury. By featuring each locomotive in turn and including images from different periods of their working life it provides a great reference for railway historians and modellers alike. Hardback. 208 pages.
