About this item

Replica-builds of locomotives are not uncommon. Most have been early locomotives such as Fire Fly or completely new construction, as in the case of LNER A1, Tornado. Never before in Britain has there been a successful rebuilding of a modern locomotive as a member of a different class. Now there has.

In this book, L.A. Summers, Peter Chatman and Richard Croucher describe the circumstances of the decision to rebuild GWR Hall class locomotive Maindy Hall as a Saint class No. 2999 Lady of Legend, constraints and criticisms of the project, research and acquisition of documentary information, developmental work, construction, and completion of an operational locomotive.
