This book covers the detailed history of the Stanier Pacifics. The author examines all aspects of their development beginning with the LMS desire to catch up with its rival, the LNER, in the race for speed and Scottish business.
John Jennison describes the evolution of the Pacifics from the first Princess Royals through to the final Coronations, and also includes a detailed account of the “Turbomotive” project. A must for those with an interest in LMS locomotive history and devotees of these magnificent engines.
