Volume 1 of Railway Breakdown Cranes was a runaway success and achieved widespread praise from book reviewers and the general public. It covered smaller cranes, many of which were still in service well into the 1960s and even beyond. Now retired Civil Engineer Peter Tatlow looks in detail at the larger cranes of 36 tons capacity and upwards. A total of fifteen chapters cover all the technical development of breakdown cranes, followed by comprehensive coverage of all the cranes provided for the four pre-Nationalisation companies as well as BR which followed later. Also detailed are the cranes provided for the Ministry of Supply. Printed on high quality art paper, and illustrated in both colour and black and white, with numerous drawings and scale plans included, this is a perfect companion to Volume 1 which will delight all enthusiasts.Reseña del editor:
Peter Tatlow provides readers a concise and detailed history of railway breakdown cranes in Britain. Although there are few railway subjects that have not been published in detail in recent years, breakdown cranes have not, possibly due to the technical nature of the subject and as such the ideal person to compile such a work would be an engineer. Respected railway author and former BR civil engineer, Peter Tatlow, has taken the subject from its early days through the time of the short-jib cranes to more recent history and the introduction and use of the long-jib variant. Even so, many of the older types continued in use well into the late twentieth century. In what will build into a two-volume history, this volume includes descriptive and informative text and numerous photographs and scale plans. Illustrations of breakdown cranes in both static and working mode complete this standard work of reference on the subject.
