British Steam Locomotives

£9.99

Product description

British Steam Locomotives features all the highlights of the history of the steam railways. This fascinating title covers the design of Richard Trevithick's engine in 1804 to Stephenson's innovative rocket in 1829, the opening of the Liverpool to Manchester line in 1830 and the golden era of the train in the early twentieth century. With hundreds of beautiful images that evoke the era, as well as artwork and maps that illustrate all aspects of the railways, from engines to signal boxes, platforms and signs.

This pack comes with an accompanying DVD, The Very Best of British Steam of Yesteryear, that showcases the most interesting lines from the old British Railways network. Although steam officially retired from daily use in England in August 1968, it is still possibly to enjoy the sights and sounds of British steam at work thanks to the efforts of a dedicated band of enthusiasts, who set out to record the world of steam railways for future observers. This wonderful DVD includes bonus footage of Bulleid Pacifics hard at work in the days of BR steam.

The book and DVD are held inside a stiff card cover which has a strong elastic tape to hold the book and DVD securely. Inside the cover is a section for the DVD case and a card slot into which the book is placed. The sides of the card slot have unfortunately become torn but it is still attached. The attractively produced book is in near-fine condition except that on the rear cover the lower left corner has several crease marks across it. The DVD, inside a standard DVD cover, is clean and bright.
