  • The 4-10-2 Three Barrels of Steam (Boynton)

An excellent reference book on three cylinder steam power history. No other publication comes close to the detail, history, and pictures of these unique locomotives. Great text with detailed information straight from the builder. Very interesting reading of the engines in actual use on the railroads,too, along with a narrative on the expected maintenance issues common to working on a third cylinder that is buried inside the chassis. A bit of information is included on the nearly identical three cylinder locomotives built for the Union Pacific, but for the most part the subject stays with the SP 5000 class engines. Numerous B&W photographs and diagrams. 1st Edition Second Printing 1973 Glenwood Publishers. Hardcover no dw. Good condition, minor rubbing to front cover. Scarce. No pages numbers, about 130pp. Scarce. 9W-TT59-SJIB
