A landmark comparison of the Chesapeake & Ohio Allegheny, the Union Pacific Big Boy, and the Norfolk & Western Class A, “World’s Greatest Steam Locomotives” presents the story of the three greatest simple articulated locomotives of all time. This big-steam fan’s delight puts these Super Power locomotives in context with steam turbines and contemporary European designs, and also includes a tribute to the N & W Y-6 Mallet.
