Deutsche Decapods: Narrow Gauge (Mainline & Maritime)

Back Order

An illustrated overview of the iconic narrow gauge ten-coupled steam locomotives produced by a number of different manufacturers in Germany. Many of these iconic locomotives survived into preservation and will be very familiar to narrow gauge steam enthusiasts who have travelled in Europe.

Germany has long been associated with this type of locomotive, from the early years of the twentieth century when it became apparent that a larger and more powerful design than the existing 0-8-0T would be required. Many famous locomotive builders introduced their own designs, including Orenstein & Koppel, Hagens, Klose, Mallet and Meyer.

Deutsche Decapods Narrow Gauge contains a selection of mainly colour photographs illustrating some of these locomotives in action over the past 50 years. The book is divided into chapters covering different types of locomotive and includes a brief introduction to each. 64 pages.
