Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Railway Breakdown Cranes: v.2 (Hardcover)
Long awaited by many who like myself purchased volume 1. The book is clearly laid out and portrays the development of the crane. Well-written in an easily readable and presentable style.
My one and only minor criticism concerns some of the photos, which presumeably taken by a digital camera, or digitised for printing are not as pin-sharp as I should have liked. This is merely a very minor bunt of mine.
However to sum up, if you wish to learn about breakdown cranes, their development, their history, then you will find it here, and if you don't have volume 1, I suggest you obtain one sharpish. These two books are the definitive work on these cranes, and are likely to remain so for many years.
