This 308 page, 8½" x 11" Hard Cover or wire bound 2 section book has 280+ diagrams like those shown below, plus clearance drawings for standard and narrow gauge locomotives and equipment as well as an index by class and unit number. A large number of pages have B&W photos, which are also listed on the index pages. Due to the large page count the Coil Bound edition is shrink wrapped as a two volume set while the Hard cover book is a single volume.The data diagrams are CADD drawn creations of what the original railway sheets may have looked like based on a few sheets we located. The data portion was developed based on LPD file data for that locomotive type.One feature not found on the CN developed files used in LPD’s DD-73 and 65/67 books, came from the steam locomotive diagrams we have. A portion of the title section was reserved to show previous number and class changes.Find out when trucks were changed from four to six axle or vice versa and back again. This is an excellent reference when trying to date photos where modifications have been recorded on these data sheets. In addition to photos from the LPD and Don Lewis' collections, many additional photos are from the Don McQueen collection and George Carpenter collections .
Each sub-class has it's own diagram, detailing overall dimensions, horsepower information, railway assignments (ie. CN or GTW etc.), truck types, number of fans, dynamic brakes, steam or electric generators, roof top air tanks on GEEP passenger units, max. speed, min. operating curve, and on and on.
