The gradual growth of the railways in Britain during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries - in both passenger and freight traffic - saw the requirement for a more powerful and versatile type of motive power - mixed traffic locomotives. The construction of Great Western Halls and Modified Halls gave the Great Western a superb all round locomotive - and for thirty-six years they operated passenger and freight services over the Great Western - and later Western Region. The Hall class were among the largest mixed traffic steam locomotives that ran throughout this country - and this is the first serious volume to focus on them in fifty years. The book charts the history of both classes - from their construction and withdrawal - to their design - development and eventual scrapping. With over 200 black and white - and colour photographs - accompanied by informative captions - many members of the class are illustrated. It will appeal greatly to those interested in the history of Great Western Locomotive development.... Please click here to ask a question
