Eric Arthur Langridge was a locomotive design engineer who worked for the Midland Railway at Derby for almost 40 years where he was involved in numerous ground breaking designs. Although many retired locomotive men have written autobiographies, most of them graduated into senior management positions, and were far removed from the detailed work of designing engines. Under 10 CMEs is unique in being written by a man who stayed close to detailed locomotive design for 40 years, including the early stages of the transition to diesel traction. No other writer has ever recorded in detail how and why locomotive designs evolved. Eric had a distinctive style of writing, well suited to his highly cynical view of some of the machinations of higher management. He was a valuable source of information for the authors of the RCTS Locomotives of the LMS series, and to anyone interested in the details of latter-day LMS and BR locomotives.
