Format: Paperback
Locomotive being one of the most liked objects from my child-hood, I purchased this book from a local store, which surprisingly elevated my inspirations to find more and more details of the histories and the transformation of the locomotives from the ancient times to the latest super power engines.

The book illustrates the locomotives in a pictorial manner having clearly categorizing them in forms of sub continents and great rail routs. each picture and zoomed-out pictures of the locomotives are explained to the detail specifications of the Date of Origin, Builder, Clients, Gauge, Driving wheels, Capacity and Total weight.

The book mainly classify its details as The birth or railway, The golden age 1900-1950, 1950 to Modern day.

This book is recommended for Loco lovers.
