"The Locomotive Up To Date" by Charles McShane. When it was originally published in 1899, The Locomotive Up to Date was hailed as "...the most definitive work ever published concerning the mechanism that has transformed the American nation: the steam locomotive." Filled with over 700 pages of text, diagrams and photos, this comprehensive volume remains one of the most important railroading books ever written. From steam valves to sanders, trucks to side rods, bells to whistles, it's a treasure trove of information, explaining in easy-to-understand language how the most sophisticated machines of the 19th Century were operated and maintained. Original 1899 edition, hard bound, 711 pages, illustrated, no dust jacket, good used condition with some minor binding separation.
