This volume on the American steam locomotive has an emphasis on mechanical and historical principles of these great machines. The 127 individual locomotive drawings are accompanied by several hundred photographs showing the engines in various stages of their development from the time they were new until they scrapped. While the drawings and photographs were primarily selected to aid the model locomotive builder, they were also chosen and arranged to give a continuous accounting of the development of the locomotive and its workings from the early years right up to the last.
