British Railways Standard Pacifics by Peter Tuffrey
British Rail Standard Pacifics features steam locomotives in the Britannia,Duke of Gloucester, and Clan classes. - There are photographs of every Britannia class locomotive, the Duke of Gloucester and all the Clan class engines. - A book of this nature has not been seen hitherto. - There is a considerable number of evocative colour pictures as well as an abundance of pin-sharp black and white images. - The total number of pictures is around 300. - The captions are well researched and informative. - The Britannia class locomotives are seen in various locations up and down the country: in London, the West Country, East Anglia, North West, Yorkshire and many other areas. The Clan Class are mainly seen operating in Scotland but a few are seen south of the Border. - Many engines are depicted undertaking a variety of duties as well as being captured on shed. Several are seen on works and on the scrap line. - The book will be of interest to both rail enthusiasts and social historians alike.
