CREWE WORKS IN THE AGE OF STEAM: A PICTORIAL TRIBUTE., Talbot, Edward.

Author Name    Talbot, Edward.

Title   CREWE WORKS IN THE AGE OF STEAM: A PICTORIAL TRIBUTE.

Publisher    Hayes / Oxford Publishing, (Sparkford, 1987), reprint.

Seller ID   15635

Unpaginated, 4to (11" H), hard cover in dust jacket. 213 b&w photographs. "Throughout the steam age, Crewe Works was one of the leading, if not the leading, railway works in the UK. Indeed, in 1913 'The Railway Magazine' described it as 'the most famous railway works in the world'. In its heyday (particularly under the London & North Western Railway) it was world renowned for its manufacture and repair of locomotives and carriages. In addition to rolling stock, the Works manufactured dozens of other items as diverse as steel rails and needles, bricks and gas mantles, and signals and lubricants. Moreover, it trained hundreds of railway engineers; who either entered the ranks of the LNWR, LMS or British Railways; or who went on to other British railway companies or to railways overseas in the British Empire and beyond. The influence of Crewe Works accordingly spread far from the confines of Crewe as a railway engineering centre...This album is designed to give a pictorial impression of Crewe Works in the steam age, and endeavours to portray some of the many achievements of the Works and the personnel who laboured within it." Faint cigarette odor, small bump to top corner of boards and at bott om edge of rear board. Dust jacket has a few small areas of light edge wrinkling. VG/VG
