  •     This book was a Christmas gift for a train enthusiast. It was very well received.
  •     I purchased this book sight unseen as a Christmas gift for a young relative who is 'train mad'. It is a truly comprehensive collection of loco's from around the globe - although it does not include any of our steam trains that were built here in New Zealand, unfortunately. Nevertheless it covers Australasian machines quite well, and certainly encompasses most other countries as well. A fascinating book for all ages (my husband aged 73 pounced on it immediately! pronouncing it to be 'a damn good book'). It will certainly appeal to the younger folk too, and I'm picking it will yield plenty of information for years to come. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a definitive photographic encyclopaedia about railway engines of every conceivable type across the last fifty years.
