Fully illustrated throughout with scale diagrams and black and white photographs, this 3rd Edition of 'The Manual of Model Steam Locomotive Construction' by Martin Evans was published in 1967 in hardback by Model Aeronautical Press Ltd, 172pp with the blue design dustjacket (earlier editions had a red design). The third edition was revised and enlarged from the 1960 material, and was written originally to provide practical help and information for engineers who build model steam locomotives of any gauge between 1.25 in and 10.25 in. Each part of the locomotive is dealt with by the author, and his instructions are supplemented by his drawings and photographs. It claims to be the most comprehensive book on the subject and enables builders of small locomotives to go ahead with their work with full confidence. It will help the reader select gauge and scale, type of locomotive, learn the general principles of design; it looks at mainframes, stretchers, axleboxes and crankpins; not forgetting wheels, axles, crank axles, crank pins, bogies, pony and radial trucks, cylinders and details, crossheads and motion details; valve gears: link motions; valve gears: radial gears; boilers; boiler fittings; lubrication, pumps, injectors, brakes, platework, tenders, tanks and fittings; fuels, raising steam and driving; index
