Using fresh sources primary information compared alongside previously conceived and published research we can see in a fresh light the real achievements and innovations he led the way in for the railway industry as a whole.
In addition, we examine all of Gresley’s designs and those of other engineers he modified during his tenure, and how he encouraged and nurtured others who would ultimately succeed him.
All of this is fully supported with a wealth of references, tables, graphs and a fabulous array of photographs, many of which have never been in print before, as we utilise the resources and archives of the Gresley Society.
If you have ever wondered or admired any of his great designs and their rightful place in history such as 4472 Flying Scotsman and 4468 Mallard, then this is the book for you.
460 Pages in a large format portrait copiously illustrated throughout with a wealth of archive colour and black & white photographs from the steam era, tables & graphs and printed on high-quality glossy art paper.
