It was for this gloriously varied picture that the Observer's Book of Railway Locomotives first appeared in not a list of numbers for that era's many trainspotters to tick off, but an identification guide, similar to a bird-watcher's manual, that enabled someone on a platform or a train in an unfamiliar area to identify a locomotive and /5(4).
