4.0 out of 5 stars but good detail and information on all classes
More of a reference book, but good detail and information on all classes. Section on preserved locomotives will be of interest to those who want to read about them all in the same book, which I've only seen in the modelling press.

3.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable read
This book is puzzling, the author is obviously a great fan of the pannier tank 'breed', and the book contains much useful information

This review is from: Great Western Railway Pannier Tanks (Hardcover)
This book is puzzling, the author is obviously a great fan of the pannier tank 'breed', and the book contains much useful information
and some excellent photos. However the history of its development through various classes is slightly sketchy and not strictly
accurate. The story of what Robin Jones describes as the small panniers is rushed and their importance is very much underestimated.
Additionally the book would be more useful for modellers and engineering students if there were more technical details and comparative diagrams. The book is a very good introduction especially for the uninitiated, as well as for established fans but it is a pity that having done so much good work the book doesn't go the whole hog and include all the information on the class which at present can only be obtained by trawling through several volumes of different publications.
