The book that Rod has, was the Ian Allen award-winner from a few years back.
The authors 2nd book, which I posted on the previous << page ...
... came out after the success of his first book.
I believe that the main difference is between tender & tank locos.
I think tenders are covered in Rods book.
Whereas tenders aren't in the tank loco book.
I'm sure the presentation & excellent construction ideas etc. are common to both books.
I just happen to have an interest in the smaller tank locos.
I think forming tanks around boilers etc. is covered well in the 2nd book.
Description of Simon Boltons tank-loco book, by Amazon reviewer :-
" An excellent textbook on model locomotive construction.
The author builds two locomotives using different methods.
One uses Markits wheels, the other Gibson.
One uses a rigid chassis, the other is compensated.
This is illustrated by a large number of splendid colour photographs showing each step of scratch-building."
