The Anatomy of the Metropolitan Railway 4-4-0 Tank Locomotive DIGITAL EDITION



This book of detail drawings was available some years ago in book form, and by agreement with Peter Manning we are pleased to reintroduce it in digital form.

The Metropolitan Class ‘A’ tanks, introduced in 1864 were the second in a whole series of Beyer Peacock locomotives built up to 1884 with the common characteristics of a Bissell truck and inclined cylinders; these were exported widely, notably to Australia, in various gauges and wheel arrangements.

The best known today are probably the Isle of Man 2-4-0 tank locomotives, but a Met tank is preserved, albeit not in running order. Whilst specific to the Metropolitan Railway locomotives, the  drawings here will help anybody building any of this series of designs.

56 landscape format pages, full of drawings dimensioned for full size.
