    ITEM#: 13071288

    Andrew Charman is an experienced journalist and lifelong railway enthusiast with an extensive knowledge of the steam locomotive scene, and he is in the process of taking the training course that will eventually see him become a qualified driver on a heritage steam railway – currently he is a trainee fireman on the narrow-gauge Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway in mid-Wales. As well as his own extensive knowledge of steam locomotives and their operation, he has direct access to all necessary professional assistance, including around a dozen former British Railways locomen.

    A fully up-to-date publication, heavily illustrated with both photographs and drawings, detailing the complete procedures needed to handle a steam locomotive. It is often said that steam locomotives appear to be living machines, casting a spell over spectators young and old, from lifelong steam enthusiasts to those witnessing live steam for the first time. This extensively illustrated manual provides a fascinating practical insight into the hard work, knowledge and skills required to safely drive a steam loco. The unique Haynes Manual approach, marrying the engaging text with step-by-step photographs and fascinating illustrations, puts the reader firmly on the footplate to experience the raw power and energy of a steam locomotive in action.
