|Locomotive Dictionary |
Fowler. In 1905, the American Railway Master Mechanics Association authorized the creation of "an illustrated dictionary of each and every part used in the building of locomotives."
A complete reproduction of the original 1906 dictionary that resulted from that authorization (and that became one of the definitive engineering references for the railroad industry), this heavily illustrated book is a wonderful piece of history that no steam fan or model railroader should be without! 694 pages, 5,100+ B&W illustrations and photographs, 8"x 10", softcover.
