The Allegheny was perhaps the finest high horsepower steam locomotive ever built which unfortunately never reached its full potential due to the arrival of the diesel engine. Although its size and potential is compared to the Union Pacific Big Boy, the Allegheny was not without controversy - which added to an inaccurate comparison of the two largest high horsepower steam locomotives. Everyone who looks at details closely- cab window, stack height, eccentric crank, air tank end, cab construction, trailing truck casting and bell mounting- will love the attention dedicated to these features and their evolution in the Allegheny as presented in this book. This book brings together the best of the railfan photographer, the railway and the builder. The Allegheny finally receives its due!
