Regarded as the bible of the American locomotive industry. Partially subsidized by manufacturers of parts and locomotives themselves, it is a highly technical description of all facets of the locomotive including steam, diesel, and electric. It includes hundreds of photographs and diagrams of practically every part, with a rather complete glossary of terms and old (1941) advertising from the manufacturers along with technical specifications.
