- Volume 1 - The Adams Classes
- South of the Thames the London & South Western Railway was a national institution of which the inhabitants of Wessex were justly proud. With its handsome green locomotives, salmon and chocolate carriages, well-appointed stations and elegant steamers, the self-assumed title of 'The Company' was well deserved. However, this was not always so; before 1878 the history was chequered, but during the succeeding twenty years it was transformed by the acumen, verve and leadership of Charles Scotter, Archibald Scott William Adams, Dugald Drummond and William Panter.
- This book the first of four volumes describing London & South Western locomotives and train services, relates to the achievements of William Adams, an engineer of great personal charm and ability who previously had held high office on the North London and Great Eastern Railways, in shipbuilding and as an engineer-in-charge of the Royal Sardinian Navy.
- At Nine Elms he introduced a series of well designed and attractive locomotives easily capable of meeting the demands of the company's passenger and goods services. Full details of all these locomotives and their daily duties are contained in this volume.
