This book sets out in detail the design, build and operation of the LNWR Coal Tanks. A notable element is the inclusion of a 55-minute CD audio documentary with interviews from a few of those who have contributed their recollections. As a social history it provides a glimpse into a lost era, as a technical work it enlarges on some little-known aspects of steam locomotive development and operation, and as a witness to early locomotive preservation it provides an insight into the problems encountered by those who helped forge the heritage railway movement of today. Bashers, Gadgets and Mourners is likely to make a notable contribution to railway literature, and its depth of content and documentary style provides an alternative approach to recording our railway heritage. The book is illustrated with more than 180 photographs and 60 line illustrations. It also includes 16 short biographies featuring some of the people who were involved in the design, construction, operation and maintenance of these engines.
