Jubilees of the LMS

£4.99

Product description

The Jubilees were a class of locomotive which had a varied and interesting history. At times they were the cause of much disappointment, yet they also had their moments of glory and high drama. This book is intended to be a factual account with no special pleading or glossing-over of shortcomings, but giving fair appreciation of the more notable achievements such as the remarkable series of test runs made in 1937 by the engine No.5660 Rooke. Some little known facts are here published for the first time, whilst some well-known happenings are given a new interpretation. Special care has been taken with the choice of photographs. Contents: Preface; 1. The Ancestry of the Jubilees; 2. The Troubled Early Years of the LMS; 3. The Patriots Set a High Standard; 4. The first Jubilee; 5. A Disappointing Start; 6. Some Significant Test Running; 7. Improved Daily Running; 8. A Rough War; 9. A Slow Recovery; 10. The Zenith of Postwar Achievement; 11. The Declining Years; 12. A Jubilee Miscellany; Appendices: A. Engine Summary; B. Bibliography.
Complete with dust jacket in very good condition.
