Fascinating study of the steam locomotives of the 20th century. The author identifies five main schools of design (American, British, German, French, and Middle-European), how they differ, the reasons for the different design trains, the effects of cross-fertilization, and the effects on steam engines in the rest of the world. With numerous charts and diagrams. Illustrated with over 100 black and white photos, most previously unpublished. 191 pages with detailed index.
