    What he made of it was not Rocket science... Written with the co-operation of the family, author Mike Norman recreates his extraordinary life and accomplishments, portrayed through the family’s quest for social justice. His challenge is to the widespread belief that George Stephenson and his ’Rocket’ locomotive owned the bedrock of the development of the steam locomotive. Drawing on family correspondence, material newly found in archives and extensive digitised sources he lays out an explosive new account about the early pioneers. Rather, it is Timothy Hackworth who was the man who breathed life into the locomotive. His natural inventiveness and skill would be fundamental in shaping the advent of the steam locomotive, engineering its future. ‘It wasn’t Rocket science’ is controversial; the conclusions of the family quest will reverberate, transforming the debate about the pioneers.

    The M7 0-4-4Ts Illustrated’ is one man’s record of a single locomotive class that held an endearing fascination; the LSWR ‘M7’ class. First introduced in 1897, 105 examples were built over the next 12 years with all but one surviving into British Railways ownership in 1948. With many of the type already over 50 years old at that time, they nevertheless continued to perform, passenger, branch freight and shunting duties often miles away from their original home, the last examples finally taken out of service in 1964. Two survive in preservation. Peter Moody first became acquainted with the class as a child in Devon and over the years developed a fascination for the class culminating in a large collection of images and a desire to see his work brought to a wider audience. Sadly that was not be during his lifetime, but Transport Treasury are delighted to bring Peter’s efforts to a rightful conclusion; ‘The Illustrated M7’.

    You want to be a steam engine driver? It's not that simple - it's not just a matter of blowing the whistle, releasing the brakes and opening the regulator. Where is the whistle? Which handle operates the brakes and what is a regulator? And do you really want to be in a locomotive cab where your front will bake and your rear will freeze? Over the years, accidents have occured on the railways and to prevent a reoccurrence, rules have been made. Do you know them? How are trains kept apart so that you don't strike the one in front, or are hit by the one in the rear? What's to stop trains on a single line colliding head-on? Colin Maggs has assembled a really fascinating collection of illustrated railwaymen's handbooks, which were required reading for a footplate man. They answer all these questions and more.
