Book Description

Originally published in 1970, this volume is a valuable source of extensive data concerning Scotland’s railways and locomotives. Material that has appeared in books, technical journals, society and institutional proceedings is here gathered together, enabling the reader to easily trace details of design and construction on the five main railways of Scotland from 1831 until 1923 when all the railways in Britain came together under English control. As well as being of interest to engineers, this volume will also appeal to railway and social historians.
