From its development in the 1800s, the locomotive has had a huge impact on all aspects of British life as it has carried travelers and freight across the country. Beyond its impact on the nation's economy and daily commute, the loco also spawned a new enthusiasm--train spotting.

The perfect pocket guide to aid any would-be train spotter, this book portrays over sixty of the important locomotive designs that have graced British rails over almost two hundred years, covering everything from Stephenson's Rocket and the Flying Scotsman to the BR Class 68 trains of 2013. Beautifully illustrated and with informative text, this book is the perfect companion to an afternoon spent on a windy, rainy platform or at a railway museum.
