Locomotives of the Great Northern Railway (The) – (Revised Edn)

by G F Bird

New and Revised Edition

This is one of the classics of the Great Northern Railway Library and is used as a reference point by many when it come to GN Locos up to the end of  1910 and therefore it still does not cover the Gresley era. Those who are particularly interested in the locos would do well to purchase a copy, although there is a link against this book to one of the online digital copies (of which there are several).

Although the title was written in 1903 and therefore should be entirely contemporary with many of the locos still in use, the author did not necessarily have access to the large amounts of data that has now been amassed.

The book is generally easy to locate on most online bookshop websites and there are sufficient copies around for the books to be modestly priced
