The Book of the BR STANDARD CLASS 5 4-6-0s
Another fine addition to 'The Book Of' series, charting in depth the life and times of the 172 Class 5 4-6-0s in the 73000 series, the popular BR successors to the LMS 'Black 5s'. Extensive and detailed coverage extends to the variants of course; the Caprottis, the air pump fitted examples and so on. The exceptional range of photographs show both the detailed engineering and construction of the 73000s and the varied work they carried out, across all the Regions of BR. They were both workhorse and warhorse on BR and constituted one of the most numerous and successful of the Standard designs.
