Peter Tatlow provides readers a concise and detailed history of railway breakdown cranes in Britain. Although there are few railway subjects that have not been published in detail in recent years, breakdown cranes have not, possibly due to the technical nature of the subject and as such the ideal person to compile such a work would be an engineer. Respected railway author and former BR civil engineer, Peter Tatlow, has taken the subject from its early days through the time of the short-jib cranes to more recent history and the introduction and use of the long-jib variant. Even so, many of the older types continued in use well into the late twentieth century. In what will build into a two-volume history, this volume includes descriptive and informative text and numerous photographs and scale plans. Illustrations of breakdown cranes in both static and working mode complete this standard work of reference on the subject.
