Garrett Traction & Ploughing Engines by R.A. Whitehead

Includes previously unpublished pictures and drawings. Garretts built over 500 engines in an interesting diversity of designs. They were involved with James Boydell and his early experiments in track-laying engines, and followed these with early self-movers and traction engines but withdrew from the market from 1885 -1895 when the agricultural depression was at its worst. Their 7NHP single was popular at home, but the range also included 4, 5, 6 and 8NHP tractions; straw-burners; vertical drum ploughing engines; showmen's engines, and road locos. A comprehensive list is included. A4 Hardback. 130 Illustrations.
