Bulleid and the Turf Burner and other Experiments with Irish Steam Traction by Ernie Shepherd

A detailed review of the experiments by the Southern Railway's Chief Mechanical Engineer, O.V.S.Bulleid, which led to the production at Inchicore Works in Ireland of the ill fated turf burning locomotive. The Leader project on Britain's Southern Region is considered as are earlier trials with Irish locomotives burning turf. This is a fascinating look at the building of a revolutionary steam locomotive which ended in 1958 with the loco's last steaming. Includes: Maps, 12 Line drawings, 65 b/w photos. Softback.
