How a Steam Locomotive Works

Post by 35005CP on Thu Apr 14, 2011 5:35 am

Hi all,

Here are a few links from my good ex-volunteer friend Tony Wood of the Midhants Railway and Barney alongside too! Enjoy! I have. Very Happy







More to come I should expect from Tony. But a good way to see and learn if anyone is interested in becoming a volunteer and getting onto the footplate. I for one cannot wait to go back!!

Best

Andy

A very good book from a very experienced Engineman. Dave Wilson has many books out there and is still writing about Steam and taking excellent Photos today!

Grab a bargain on one of his books today on Amazon; http://www.amazon.co.uk/Steam-Locomotives-Work-David-Wilson/dp/1854860801

Also, if you are Interested he has many others out there. Here are the links to these;

These really are great books and tell many tales.

Best Wishes

Andy
