5.0 out of 5 stars Congratulations to Hugh Longworth
This is a superb book, and although a little pricey, it's worth it as definitive reference for all steam locos in the BR era. However, if you are looking for a pictorial (photo) volume, this is not for you, but don't let that put you off.

This is a superb book, and although a little pricey, it's worth it as definitive reference for all steam locos in the BR era. However, if you are looking for a pictorial (photo) volume, this is not for you, but don't let that put you off. In years to come, this will indeed become the Grail (as previously mentioned) for steam loco enthusiasts who have already acquired numerous photographic volumes (like me), and it will undoubtedly be the best cross-reference book you will ever have!

Hugh Longworth must be applauded for this gigantic volume.
