Description

The RCTS is pleased to announce the publication of the above work. The Society has joined forces with the well known transport history publisher Black Dwarf Lightmoor to produce this long overdue acknowledgement of Armstrong Whitworth's work in the field of diesel railway transport. The manuscript was completed by the late Brian Webb in 1978 and covers in comprehensive detail the Armstrong Whitworth involvement in the development and production of a total of 34 diesel electric locomotives and 30 multiple units, railcars and railbuses between 1928 and 1938. With very few company records available Brian Webb set about gathering material from former company employees and customers all over the world. The book contains a host of never before seen black and white photographs and drawings. Originally intended as a black and white publication it is published as written but with a colour supplement detailing the present known position of preserved Armstrong Whitworth vehicles.
215mm x 275mm, casebound, 184 pages, 161 illustrations, 12 in colour and 42 drawings.
