Tornado, 21st Century Steam,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tornado: 21st Century Steam (Hardcover)
I whole heartedly agree with Music Lover, with one minor exception ---- I would have liked a little more on the actual `assembly' of Tornado, but I guess I will find another publication that will expand on this.
The history of the original A1 class was very well explained. I remember them at The Cross in the early sixties. Yep, I was an early `spotter', who actually got taken round Top Shed by a security officer who felt sorry for me and my companions --- great times!
I actually bought this book for myself, so I don't have to buy another copy to keep on the coffee table.
It really is a thoroughly good read, and that's what it should be ---- not a pictorial to thumb through!
I still give it top marks despite my early critique!
