NOCK, O.S.

Rocket 150 - A Century and a half of Locomotive Trials

A history of locomotive trials and testing from the 1829 Rainhill trials to the Cornish Riviera in 1955. Coverage is both UK and foreign with photographs, diagrams and data throughout. Issued at the time of the 1980 anniversary, the title is somewhat misleading as coverage is far wider than Rainhill alone

Chapters include:
Rainhill 1829; Baltimore and Ohio; GWR Broad gauge; French trials on the Nord; St. Louis 1904 Compound Atlantics; LNWR Bowen Cooke; Gresley LNER; Natal Mallet and Garratt; GWR Castles; BR 1948 trials; New South Wales steam and diesel.
