World Steam in the Twentieth Century
- World Steam in the Twentieth Century
- As a steam locomotive designer and one who, in his professional career, has had to observe and assess practice abroad as well as at home, E.S.Cox sets out in this volume to survey steam locomotive development throughout the world in the present century. His main theme is to identify the five principal schools of design, those of America, Britain, France, Germany and Middle-Europe, which, besides influencing one another in varying degree, have determined the aspect and content of steam engines throughout most of the rest of the world.
- He provides an informed commentary upon the manner in which this cross-fertilisation has advanced the art of locomotive engineering, and examines the reasons which have produced the design trends in the different countries using standard or broad gauge track
- The book contains numerous tables of comparative dimensions and is illustrated by 113 photographs
