"The Red Devil and Other Tales from the Age of Steam"

Posted by: Chris Newman

Thanks to the 125 people (so far) who have expressed interest in buying a copy of David Wardale's  book "The Red Devil and Other Tales from the Age of Steam" through the auspices of the 5AT Group.  The latest news is that the book should be available in late March or early April.  We will be notifying everyone who has expressed interest in the book when final price and the release date are known.

For those who don't know about the book, further information can be found about it on this website.  Suffice to say that it should be essential reading for anyone who is interested in what makes locomotives tick, and how to improve their performance and reliability.

The book is expected to cost around £40 sterling (plus postage) which will be only 30% more than the original printing cost back in 1998.  Anyway, I think it is not an exaggeration to say that almost everyone who has bought the book will testify that it is excellent value and an investment insofar as it is the sort of book that one will keep, and refer back to, over a lifetime.

Those who have not yet expressed interest in buying the book are invited to lodge their interest by writing to the webmaster@5at.co.uk.  We will then ensure that a copy of the book will be made available to them.

The 5AT Group will be grateful to everyone who buys the book through this website, since all profits earned through the sale of the book will be used by the Group to undertake some exciting (but yet to be announced) projects that are currently in the pipeline.
