Joseph Locke: Railway Revolutionary
Webster, N.W      
ISBN: 0043850553
George Allen & Unwin Ltd London, UK 1970 First Edition  Hard Cover 220 Pages with Black/White Photos and Illustrations. Joseph Locke, the most zealous, competent and efficient figure of the Railway Revolution, was not only a civil and mechanical engineer of the first flight, but a brilliant planner and administrator who understood precisely the concepts we now call specification and communication. He engineered the first trunk line in Britain, completed the London and Southampton Railway and the Manchester and Sheffield line, then drove his rails westwards to Exeter, and then northwards over Shap Fell to Glasgow and Edinburgh, Perth and Aberdeen. Better than anyone, he could claim to be the principal architect of Britain's developing railway system.  Good/Fine
