Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0711033609, Hardcover)

For enthusiasts of Irish railways this book will be the ultimate reference guide. It summarises the purpose and principal features of each locomotive design ever to run on the railways since 1949, and illustrates all the significant differences between locomotives within a class. Each section of this book begins with a summary of a particular railway's territory and locomotive fleet. Then the locomotive classes are individually documented, each with its own section, including a table of basic dimensions, photographs and a narrative covering the design of the locomotive, use and subsequent history. Designed in a user-friendly format, readers will find it easy to trace any locomotive type that they wish to reference. Although the book does not cover multiple units, industrial railway or pleasure railway locomotives, it does include most preserved locomotives in Ireland today as they come from types that fall chronologically within the locomotive classes described here and their preservation is referenced in the text.
