John Young and David Tyreman the coauthors
have produced a book covering all the 285 locomotives that comprised
these classes of engines based on their personal involvement and research.
One co-author worked in the CME’s office on technical matters and was
therefore in direct contact with Stanier when new classes were being worked
up including the 2-6-0. The other is heavily involved in the preservation of one
of the surviving locomotives. As usual with RCTS books all aspects of construction,
modification, trials, use and allocation are covered in detail including
storage and disposal. There are also chapters on the four in preservation.
