Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, , 252 pp. From the blurb: "Right from the early days, railways have embraced a wide field of science and technology, nowhere more so than in the various engineering branches. Civil engineers were faced with problems never before encountered in opening up trunk railway routes and locomotive engineers were dealing with new forms of steam machine. Later signal and electrical engineering were added to railway technology, while more recent times have seen many engineers, not only building on the work of their predecessors but developing new techniques in the quest for higher speeds, safer travel and automation. This book, containing more than 600 biographies of leading railway engineers, is intended not only as a work of reference for the railway historian but also as a unique and compact record of value to all enthusiasts. Its index of railway companies allows anyone working on the history of a particular railway to locate quickly the engineers concerned with its construction and operation and references to sources and further information. The entries include civil, mechanical, electrical and signalling engineers not only from Britain, but also leading European and North American engineers." Very Good in slightly used dustwrapper with slightly faded spine-panel. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-39922
