Book cover

Fifteen Shillings Change by Kerr Stuart & Co Ltd. Re-printed by the Industrial Railway Society. ISBN 1901556575 Softback 280mm x 21mm, 30 pages, 14 illustrations

A wonderful facsimile of a brochure produced by Kerr Stuart in 1929 to advertise the considerable economies of Diesel over steam. The title refers to an alleged 75% saving in operating costs. Enough technical detail for interest without be overwhelming and remarkable prophetic.

Price £8.34 including P&P. Profits shared between Kerr Stuart 4415 project and the Industrial Railway Society.

KerrStuartKerr, Stuart's Internal Combustion Locomotives by Allan C. Baker. Published by the Industrial Railway Society. ISBN 978190155697-1 Hardback with dust jacket, 260mm x 210mm, 140 pages, over 100 photographs.

In the last three years of their existence Kerr, Stuart & Co Ltd built 25 Diesel locomotives including of course the pioneer locomotive 4415. Five of them still survive today. Allan Baker has been able to draw on the considerable volume of Kerr Stuart source material contained in .the Hunslet Engine Co Archive to produce a well written technical account of the various locomotives.

If you are wondering why the title refers to ‘internal combustion’ rather than just Diesel, Kerr, Stuart’s did dabble in some very arcane petrol powered machines in the early part of the 20th Century which are also covered by this volume.

Price £36.00 including P&P. Profits shared between Kerr Stuart 4415 project and the Industrial Railway Society.

Stocks of binders to accommodate the larger magazines issued since No. 192 are running down and we expect to have to impose an increase in the price when new stock is bought.  The cardboard postal sleeves accommodate two binders and the cost of posting a pair is only a little greater than for a single binder.  Therefore each pair of binders costs £17.00, post paid.  Each single binder costs £9.00, post paid.
