Drake International Railroad Series. From the back of the dust jacket: "Road and works numbers of engines are given throughout, together with technical details where these are of special interest, and the book is lavishly illustrated by some 130 locomotives photographs, many of which have never previously been published, and 115 detailed scale drawings. The result of nine years' intensive research, this is the most comprehensive and detailed account of the steam locomotives of South Africa yet published and an invaluable source of reference to railroad historian and enthusiast alike.
