Hi Guys :wave:

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."
