The introduction is by David Morgan the editor of Train Magazine. The book contains hundreds of photographs that start with the steam era and transition over to the diesel era. The pictures are stunning. There are pictures of steam engines, streamlined steam engines, early diesel single unit trains (engines and passenger cars as one unit), steam and diesel engines existing together and diesel engines. Passenger and freight train fans will be delighted by the pictures. If you love stream engines, diesel engines or just trains, you need to add this book to your collection.
