Latest in the 'Book Of' series, presenting a comprehensive history and full sequence of works visits together with several photographs of every individual engine. 'A handsome locomotive, firmly in the Gresley tradition of handsome designs' and that is certainly true of the LNER B17 4-6-0s. 'Good engineering should look good, and Gresley never set his hand to a design which looked less than very good.' Again certainly true. The engines had a relatively brief time at the forefront of express working, mainly on the Great Eastern and Great Central Sections and eventually all were concentrated at former GE depots. This rendered many of them remote from enthusiast eyes though fortunately the selection of one for Royal trains meant they came to be closely observed indeed.
