Former BR Civil Engineer Peter Tatlow provides a concise and detailed history of Railway Breakdown Cranes in Britain in a two-volume history. This takes the subject from its early days through the time of the shortjib cranes to more recent history and the introduction and use of the long-jib variant.

Illustrations of breakdown cranes in both static and working mode complete this standard work of reference on the subject.
