Product description

Review

Here Keith Langston Presents a 'potted history' of the different British Railways Standard classes, plus the Riddles 'Dub Deed', Providing a welcome reference work for those looking for an up-to-date picture. For what this book does succinctly is to show both the BD scene and the post-preservation era. Many reference books will give chapter and verse on the BR days and then just inform us weather a locomotive has been preserved or scrapped. For some locomotives there is - fortunately - more of a story to be told. After examining the work of Riddles and the Standard Design Group, a chapter is allocated to each class. In the case of the 'Britannias' and 'Clans', details and at least one photograph of each class member are included. There are a good number of illustrations throughout in black & white and colour with the quality ranging form average to excellent.- Steam Railway Magazine
