3.0 out of 5 stars The definitive guide to DMUs and EMUs
Anything by Colin Marsden is a safe bet. I loved the very first recognition series 40-odd years ago and this new edition in full colour takes it to a new level. Print quality is first class on good quality paper with an excellent selection of top-notch images. If there are two failings from my perspective, one is that the font size is rather small - perhaps it's an age...

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great reference work, 10 Feb. 2014

This review is from: DMU and EMU Recognition Guide (Hardcover)
This summary by Colin Marsden is an invaluable reference work, that I dip into when reading books and magazine articles to get the background and detail they omit.

This review is from: DMU and EMU Recognition Guide (Hardcover)
Anything by Colin Marsden is a safe bet. I loved the very first recognition series 40-odd years ago and this new edition in full colour takes it to a new level. Print quality is first class on good quality paper with an excellent selection of top-notch images. If there are two failings from my perspective, one is that the font size is rather small - perhaps it's an age thing, but I would have paid more for a larger page size. The other is that I feel separate volumes dealing with DMUs and EMUs (as per the original series) would have been better. But these are minor and very personal preferences. It is good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference book, 11 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DMU and EMU Recognition Guide (Hardcover)
A clearly and logically laid out summary of (almost) all post-grouping Multiple Units, summarising initial numbering, renumberings and electrical, mechanical and physical characteristics. It includes conversions, experimental and prototype vehicles, many of which may be unfamiliar to readers. Well illustrated and very convenient when looking for details of unfamiliar rolling stock. An excellent reference book, which I hope will be periodically updated. My only nit-picks are that it does not give the LNWR-Bakerloo Watford joint tube stock (I believe some of these were numbered 28215-8, surviving into nationalisation, running on the Watford-Rickmansworth line), and I felt that the Bennie Railplane might have been worth a mention, as this appeared in LNER promotional material, although a private venture. Trams do not appear, so there is no reference to the Grimsby and Immingham Electric Railway, nor to the electric trams and later Drewry railcars on the Ryde Pier Tramway. Overall - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, detailed account of all the multiple units, 14 Jan. 2015

This review is from: DMU and EMU Recognition Guide (Hardcover)
An excellent, detailed account of all the multiple units, both diesel and electric, operated on railways in Britain. For the enthusiast, they are as interesting as steam locomotives. Each type is presented with pictures and technical details, showing all the variations within each class. An interesting and absorbing book.

Excellent content & production, marred by a few misprints / conflicting statements. CJM needs a decent proof reader - or to stop relying on software to do what only an engaged human brain can do effectively.

This review is from: DMU and EMU Recognition Guide (Hardcover)
This book arrived promptly in good condition.
It was purchased because of my interest in EMU rolling stock and it delivers brief but precise information on all units up to date of publication.
