5.0 out of 5 stars The Model Steam Locomotive: A Complete Treatise on Design and Construction., 13 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Martin Evans was the ideal successor to the very famous LBSC who in1923 gave amateurs the confidence to build model live steam locomotives which were not glorified toys and went on providing sound, practical designs until his death in 1967. Evans took LBSC's approach into the next stage by bringing important aspects of the craft, such as frame-design, boiler specifications, valve-ports, steam-pipe size and boiler-feed under his astute scrutiny so that models were rendered even more efficient and reliable as passenger-carriers. As with LBSC, his style of instruction was as friendly as it was comprehensible and the fruits of his efforts are to be seen on many club tracks today. Perhaps the most significant and valuable factor in Evans' contribution was his long experience in designing full-size locomotives for the Rhodesian Railways and incorporating where possible those aspects of full-size practice which could benefit the design of the models.
