Southern Pacific Ten-Coupled
Locomotives

by Robert J. Church


tin cup jacket

This long-awaited book from noted SP locomotive authority Bob Church covers all the ten-coupled types, from El Gobernador of the 1880s and the T&NO 2-10-0s, to all the 2-10-2s and 4-10-2s. Extensive research has yielded the full details about SPís experiments with valve gear on 2-10-2 number 3769, and equally full details about the design and construction of the three-cylinder locomotives with Gresley valve gear in the SP Class 4-10-2s. Typical of Churchís in-depth information, it has many unpublished photos, some in color, and includes line profiles, maps, and locomotive/tender plans in its 24 chapters, and also features a chapter on tenders by Arnold Menke. Exhaustive information on history, operations and maintenance is also presented. No SP fan should be without this book.
