Designed as a companion volume to the author's similar work on the AC Electrics, this new and informative book is an illustrated history of the great variety of dc electric locomotives and EMUs that have graced the tracks of the National Network. It includes the two famous Woodhead classes 76 and 77, the various Southern locomotives types Classes 70/71/73/74, and Class 92 in DC mode. Perhaps more importantly, eminent author Colin Marsden also includes invaluable information on the DC locomotives produced for departmental and special use. There is a great range of EMUs featured, including those of the crucial pioneering electrification schemes, such as the Mersey Railway and the Holcombe Brook branch. Also covered are the Manchester Altrincham lines, the Tyneside suburban network, the Grimsby and Immingham trams, the early LSWR schemes, as well as details of the later development of stock for the third-rail systems in and around London.Comprehensively illustrated throughout with stunning colour and mono illustrations, this fabulous new guide will provide detailed information on a subject not covered exclusively in many other publications. A must have for all modern traction enthusiasts.
