The forth book in the British Steam series by Keith Langston

In 1907 a patent application by Mr .H. W. Garratt led to the building of the first articulated steam locomotive. Supplied to Tasmanian Railways in 1909, now 100 years later K1 is back and at work in the UK.

A total of 1,636 Beyer - Garratt locos ran on 86 railways in 48 countries. ‘Garratt 100’ pays tribute to the articulated locomotives of Beyer Peacock & Company Ltd.

The discontinued use of steam locomotives by British Railways was finalised in the summer of 1968, but by 1971 the practice of running steam special trains, had began. First limited to only a handful of selected routes, but in 1994 railway ‘open access’ changed all that. The ‘steam special years’ are celebrated. Opened May 1898, closed September 1935! Just over 19 miles of narrow gauge railway running through glorious Devon, the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway remembered!

This edition also chronicles the work of a modern railway artist, takes a look at industrial steam, highlights LMS streamliners, and looks back to Oxford in 1961. Plus ‘New build’ another GWR loco in prospect! Compiled and edited by Keith Langston.
