A Climax Class A Live Steam Locomotive
Live steamers and metalworking hobbyists will be delighted with this comprehensive work covering the design, construction, painting, and commissioning of a working steam locomotive model. The Climax Class A locomotive was the original Climax model with a two-cylinder upright motor combined with a two-speed transmission and skew bevel gears. This model for Gauge 1 track comes to life as 661 drawings, 358 color photographs, and detailed fabrication guidance all meld and resonate in the mind. But wait! This book is not just about building a locomotive model. Here is a source book of current shop techniques where CNC machining one-off parts is a paragraph and a photo away from old school soldering, bending and filing. Makers and doers will find the fabrication tips and advice to be invaluable. Detailed plans are also included for a carrier and case, test rollers, a stack blower, and an E-clip grooving tool for the lathe. Do not overlook the computer files that accompany the book on the publisher’s download site. Where else will you find software program code to cut skew bevel gears and mill parabolic headlight dishes?

Ferromancer: Iron Souls, Book
Solutions aren’t always black and white—sometimes they come in shades of iron gray.Captain Bridget “Briar” Rose wants for nothing. Each day is a new adventure, living the life she loves, running cargo on the Ohio & Erie Canal. That is, until her cousin decides to sell the family boat to finance a new business venture. He wants to build locomotives for the railroad—the very industry that could put the entire canal system out of business.Not one to give up without a fight, Briar does a little snooping into her cousin’s new business partner. When she gets a sneak peek at the locomotive plans, she suspects that the man is either a genius, or a ferromancer—one of the dreaded metal mages of Europe’s industrial revolution.Determined to reveal her suspicions, Briar takes the plans and heads for the newspaper office in Columbus, stealing the family boat in the process. Kidnapping her cousin’s handsome business partner wasn’t part of the plan, but when he shows up, demanding the return of his property, she can’t let him go. After all, if Briar can prove that the railroad is using ferromancy, she could save more than her boat. She could save her way of life.

North American Locomotives
Profusely illustrated with rare historic and previously unpublished modern photography, North American Locomotives this is the perfect addition to the library of any rail fan. This invaluable volume spans more than 150 years of locomotive technology to examine the wide variety of steam, diesel, and electric locomotives that have powered ninety North American railroads, past and present, through the decades. Since locomotive-building has long been a made-to-order business, the book is arranged alphabetically by railroad to give you a better understanding of how specific technologies suited specific needs. The railroads featured range from the best-known historic lines, such as the Canadian Pacific, Santa Fe, Union Pacific, and Baltimore & Ohio, to today's giant Class I roads, commuter lines, and selected short lines. The result is a beautifully presented reference guide that features more than 400 locomotive gems, including historic machines such as New York Central's J3a Hudsons, Pennsylvania Railroad's GG1 electrics, and EMD's classic E- and F-Units, to today's most powerful modern diesels. All the major builders - past and present - are represented, including such heavyweights as Baldwin, Alco, Lima, EMD, GE, and more.
