📒Perfecting The American Steam Locomotive ✍ J. Parker Lamb
✏Perfecting the American Steam Locomotive Book Summary : "J. Parker Lamb traces the evolution of the steam engine from the early 1700s through the early 1800s, when the first locomotives were sent to the United States from England. Lamb then shifts to the development of the American steam locomotive, first by numerous small builders and later, in the early twentieth century, by only three major enterprises and a handful of railroad company shops. Lamb reviews the steady progress of steam locomotive technology through its pinnacle during the 1930s, then discusses the reasons for the subsequent decline of this famous machine."--BOOK JACKET.

📒Shay Patent And Direct Locomotive Catalog ✍ Shay Locomotive Works
✏Shay Patent and Direct Locomotive Catalog Book Summary : In 1877, Ephraim Shay designed a steam locomotive that featured a side-mounted set of cylinders. These in turn drove longitudinal shafts, which powered the wheels of both the locomotive and tender. This ¿geared locomotive¿ developed terrific tractive effort. The Lima Locomotive Works of Ohio, produced the first Shay locomotive in 1880. A little more than two decades later, when this catalog was produced, the company was producing three different classes of Shays. The last engine was built in 1945 and still operates at the Cass Scenic Railroad in West Virginia. This reproduction catalog is a wonderful resource for the model railroader, train spotter, and rail enthusiast.
📒A History Of The Baldwin Locomotive Works 1831 1920 ✍ Baldwin Locomotive Works
✏A History of the Baldwin Locomotive Works 1831 1920 Book Summary : Originally written in the late 1900¿s and then periodically revised, A History of the Baldwin Locomotive Works chronicles the origins and growth of one of America¿s greatest industrial-era corporations. Founded in the early 1830¿s by Philadelphia jeweler Matthais Baldwin, the company built a huge number of steam locomotives before ceasing production in 1949. These included the 4-4-0 American type, 2-8-2 Mikado and 2-8-0 Consolidation. Hit hard by the loss of the steam engine market, Baldwin soldiered on for a brief while, producing electric and diesel engines. General Electric¿s dominance of the market proved too much, and Baldwin finally closed its doors in 1956. By that time over 70,500 Baldwin locomotives had been produced. This high quality reprint of the official company history dates from 1920. The book has been slightly reformatted, but care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.
