LMS Locomotive Profile No.4 - The 'Princess Royal' Pacifics


Thirty one works drawings, numerous B&W photos, frequently of details and a good text, covering the twelve 4-6-2 locomotives of the 'Princess Royal' class.

As a Class they were overshadowed by the 'Coronation' Pacifics which appeared some fours years after the 'Princess Royals', but they held their own in top-link service all over the London Midland Railway and its successors.

If you are modelling, or super-detailing a model of one of this class, in any scale or gauge, electric or steam powered, this book will prove a treasure trove of information. As far as I am aware, there are commercial models of this class available in both 00 and 0 gauges; additionally the 3 1/2" gauge design by H.P. Jackson previously available from Clarksons has been reintroduced by Blackgates Engineering (Download the Clarkson Catalogue from their website for details).

High quality 112 page paperback.

If this book isn't enough on its own, there is also a 'Pictorial Supplement' available, comprising around 130 B&W photos of all the 'Princess Royals' in service, as well as more details photographs. Click HERE for more details.
