Britain's Miniature Railways No. 2: The Pretenders (Mainline & Maritime)

3 In Stock

An illustrated review of steam outline internal combustion powered locomotives in the UK. Steam outline is a term used to describe miniature railway locomotives that are designed to resemble traditional steam locomotives, but in reality are powered by diesel or petrol engines, hence the title “The Pretenders”.

Between 1993 and 2002 a series of articles appeared in the magazine of the Narrow Gauge Railway Society, setting out to describe and illustrate the various designs of these locomotives. This volume brings these articles together in a single volume, with the addition of a couple of earlier related essays and a new article commissioned for this volume. The previously published material has been updated and further enhanced by the addition of colour photographs.

Britain's Miniature Railways No. 2: The Pretenders describes all the best known types and lists all other examples in a detailed appendix. Cover gauges from 9½ inches to 2 foot. An interesting review of a little-covered subject. 52 pages.
