Basic Steam Locomotive Maintenance

by D.C. Buell

333 pages, hardbound brown leatherette cover, 6x9".

""BASIC STEAM LOCOMOTIVE MAINTENANCE" was developed by the late D. C. Buell, founder of the Railway Educational Bureau. The material in this book was used to train tens of thousands of railroad shop craftsmen who maintained the nation's steam locomotive fleets. Historical book covering steam locomotive maintenance, from theories of combustion and firing to valves and valve gears, this volume revives the mechanics and operations of the by-gone steam locomotive. Richly illustrated and large print make this a valuable addition to any collection."
