First published in 1879, this book was identified as a 'lost' publication by Peter Waterman who has provided the introduction to this fascinating work.

The original manuscript was published in the year of the Tay Bridge Disaster and the Zulu War in South Africa and it looks in detail at the history and development of the steam locomotive from 1804-1879. It contains examples of famous types of machines from the past and up to the most contemporary pieces of railway locomotive technology.

With a selection of quality drawings and engineering diagrams, as well as rare photographs from this remarkable period of industial change, The Victorian Steam Locomotive is a timely and long-overdue insight into the thinking of Victorian engineers, lovingly restored here for today's lovers of steam.

A good quality publication providing a detailed description of locomotive development of the period.

The Railway Observer April 2016

When I collected the book I said that it felt right and looked right. Having read it, it is right. Although it has been abridged by D K Clark for this 2015 edition, the original 19th century prose and the many illustrations, mainly drawings, add to the interest. The book is divided into 2 parts, 4 sections and 26 chapters....

... A very good read for anyone interested in the history of development of steam locomotives up to 1879.
