Price: £19.99

ISBN : 9781445633428
Written by Gordon Edgar

This is a wonderful little book for those who love the J94 / Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0 saddle tank or just love looking at our industrial heritage. The book contains a brief history of the class in general and an overview of regional operations. The excitement and insight though comes from the photographs. Gordon Edgar has a great collection of industrial steam photos and those chosen for this book are an eye opener into a long forgotten world. From near derelict collieries to the pristine military and private railways, each page delivers a high quality picture.

Highly recommended for modellers and enthusiasts alike.

Available from Bill Hudson Transport Books and other dealers.
