Steam Locomotive Coaling Stations and Diesel Locomotive Fueling Facilities ~ by Thomas W Dixon Jr
Steam Locomotive Coaling Stations and Diesel Locomotive Fueling Facilities
"Typically, coaling stations were huge towers of steel, concrete, or timber that held 50 to 1,000 tons of coal. This coal would eventually be dumped into steam locomotive tenders to be delivered across the country. The author uses reproduced material and articles that originally appeared in Railway Age and other trade magazines of the era, and advertisements from the three major builders of coaling stations: Fairbanks-Morse, Ogle Engineering and Roberts & Schaefer. Photographs show various types of coaling stations and fueling facilities, stand pipes and tanks, and cinder conveyors."

The Stephensons' Rocket: A History of a Pioneering Locomotive  ~ by Michael R. Bailey & John P. Glithero
Stephensons' Rocket
"
The Rocket steam locomotive is one of the best-known icons of the early railway age. In 1999, Michael Bailey and John Glithero undertook a major survey of Rocket, involving an examination of all its components and detailed research into the documentation relating to its history.

This book is based on the results of that study. It describes Rocket, its main components and the way in which they worked. Setting the locomotive in its historical context, the book emphasizes the importance of the father-and-son engineers, George and Robert Stephenson. It also tells of the fame that Rocket achieved in 1829 and its brief career at the very beginning of the railway era."
