Class A Locomotives of the Barsi Light Railway - Anatomy of a Locomotive

Published by the Narrow Gauge Railway Society in 2017, 80 pages. A4 Size Booklet (N6711X2)

This book is devoted to locomotives built by Kitson of Leeds for a notable 2ft 6-inch gauge railway in India. It mainly consists of reproductions of the complete set of Kitson’s drawings relating to these 0-8-4 Tank locomotives built in the 1890s, which are preserved in the Narrow Gauge Railway Society library. The book will thus appeal to narrow gauge enthusiasts, model engineers and modellers alike: the drawings are accompanied by detailed explanatory text and together provide a complete anatomy of a Victorian steam locomotive. Full explanatory pages cover the background to the development of these locos, the railway on which they worked, the builder, and designer Everard Calthrop.

The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, and there is some light scuffs, wear and bumping along the edges and corners, but the staple spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
