- Drummond Locomotives
- A Pictorial History
- Some of the country's most stylish locomotives were designed by the Drummond brothers. Their engines could at one stage of British steam history be found virtually as far afield as John O'Groats and Lands End. A Drummond locomotive be it by Dugalg or Peter possessed a special quality of robustness and finish which could be ascribed to a training in Scottish engineering - then without peer in the world - which both men received early in their careers.
- Dugald and Peter Drummond both worked for more than one railway company enabling a cross-fertilisation of ideas and practice which led to some excellent designs - Dugald was Locomoitve Superintendant of both the North British and Caledonian Railways prior to moving south to the London & South Western Railway. It was for the LSWR that he designed the M7 and T9 classes - both of which lasted until the last years of Southern steam. Peter remained in Scotland, in charge of the Highland and Glasgow & South Western Railways, and is best known for his 'Castle' class.
- Following the successful Locomotives series format, Brian Haresnape and Peter Rowledge have produced a highly readable reference book whose many photographs and line drawings provide a much needed standard coverage of two important locomotive engineers.
