Price comparison product image Live Steam Locomotive Construction: L.B.S.C's famous 4-4-0 Virginia
Originally published in 1975 (reprinted in 1976 by Model and Allied Publications), this is the latest reprint of this title from TEE Publishing, 190pp, ISBN 1857611306 and it is a simple and effective guide written by the late LBSC ("Curly" Lawrence) to building a live steam model locomotive, in this case his 4-4-0 Virginia. It was produced in answer to requests that LBSC should design a real pioneer-days type locomotive redolent of cowboys and indians and the opening up of the West of the United States. His North American following should be well pleased with the result. The original publishers remarked that LBSC had truly captured the spirit of those times which, combined with somewhat more modern techniques where these seem indicated, enable us to present this offering in the utmost confidence.
