Many, much more than “interested”, being prepared to give up their time and work on the many preserved railways for free, just for the love of it. Others add to our knowledge and interest by writing books or articles and producing videos and photographs. I suspect part of this interest from the older enthusiast goes back to those steam days when children and young adults did not have the myriad of toys and other distractions we have today, and perused more simple pleasures such as train spotting. For many later in life that interest returns and they have the time to rediscover those old pleasures and study their interest in railways to a much greater depth. All these people will remember one book in particular, every train spotter had one and it did more to encourage the hobby than anything else. That book was the “ABC of British Locomotives” published by Ian Allan and divided for steam engines into four parts, the Southern, Western, LNER and LMS. It was updated every year and they did a combined edition. Most of us had just the area we lived in and perhaps hoped someone would buy the combined as a Christmas present! They also produced a loco shed version which was very helpful to find the home sheds of engines. The books were formatted with the wheel arrangement and class name, followed by a few facts about the class such as introduced, weight, pressure and tractive effort . Then followed in tabular form the numbers of the engines in that class with the names if they were named engines. Everyone underlined the number when they “spotted it”. It was simple and efficient and must have earned Ian Allan a huge amount of money. Its drawback today as a research document is each book was a snapshot at a point in time. The next edition would not show engines since withdrawn or of course engines being built and put into service in future years. I would like to think that my contribution to railway & locomotive history not only fills this gap but considerably expands the information provided taking the locomotive history not only back to pre grouping times but to the beginning of the railways of Britain. The thirty books I have produced details every one of the 60,000 locomotives that ran on the railways of Britain in a very easy to read tabular format, with many cross referenced tables enabling information to be researched quickly and efficiently. It not only gives and cross references every running number carried by an engine, but also every name and change of name with a glossary giving the meaning of the name of the 10,000 named engines Posted with eBay Mobile Condition: New
