Reseña del editor: GEC traction, its predecessors and associates, have long been in the forefront of development and supply of diesel and electric traction, the history of which is in fact nearly as old as that of the railway industry itself. This is the story of the development of non-steam rail traction in which GEC and its forebears provides power for the world's railways. Comprehensive history of many of Britain's leading locomotive manufacturers, including English Electric, Vulcan Foundry, Metropolitan-Vickers, British Thomson-Houston Co, Dick and Kerr that came together ultimately as GEC Traction - now part of GEC Althsom. The book also looks at the early development and application of electric and internal combustion power as applied to rail traction, including the pioneering shunting locomotives for the LMS and GWR, the early development of diesel and electric traction and the production locomotives and multiple units operated by British Rail including "Deltics" and Classes 20, 37, 40 and 50.
