Just ran across this publisher of locomotive reprints.
Locomotive Building is the only one I've seen so far. There's a lot of detailed info from flange size to setting valves.

Yes, they do subs, too.

Harvey, where's the "Locomotive Building" book? The page only seems to have manufacturer's catalogs (and they're wonderful!) Would like to have an old locomotive builder's manual of some sort.

Thanks,
André,

Locomotive Building
Construction of a Steam Engine for Railway Use

A 1911 work on the building of Pennsy Loco's. That factory was finishing one a day!

Totally fascinating - and not just the locomtove section - a flight operations manual for an XB-70 Valkyrie!
