Description

“”NZR’s Ja & Ww Class Locomotives” by Sean Millar. ISBN 978-1-927329-29-0.

40 pages printed in full colour throughout. A4 format, staple bound.

Profusely-illustrated histories of two of NZR’s most successful steam locomotive types, the 51-member Ja 4-8-2 class of 1946, and the 64-member Ww 4-6-4T class of 1915. The Ja served right up to the end of regular steam operation on NZR and the Ww almost to the end. Both classes served widely throughout New Zealand, and members of both have since been beautifully preserved in full working order. Includes many previously unpublished photographs, mostly in colour, a reproduction of a wonderful painting by WW Stewart, four mini blueprints, five tables and a comprehensive reading list.
