Hush-Hush - The Story of LNER 10000
Detailed locomotive study of Gresley's 'Hush-Hush' project to build a 4-6-4 4-cylinder compound locomotive. Completed in 1929, the engine was rebuilt in 1936 and finally withdrawn in 1959. A very fine study with photographs and data throughout.

Chronicles of Steam
Reflections from Cox include his work for the L&Y and LMS in the drawing office, testing plant and as mechanical inspector. In addition he reflects on the GWR as an outsider and locomotives that never came into existence.
