The Climax locomotive was "one of the most unique locomotives ever manufactured in the United States of America." And this book is "the most ambitious work ever done." (on it) Originating from the collection of Walter C. Casler who worked for the Climax company until they closed their doors, it has been compiled over four years of research, due to the incredible elusiveness of the history of the Climax locomotives. The extensive search has paid its toll as the present volume is an amazingly reliable source of records and rosters from the archives of the Climax company.

Lavishly illustrated with B&W historic photographs, all accurately captioned. Features five appendices. Appendix A: Patent Drawings. Appendix B: Class A, B and C Scale Drawings. Appendix C: Employee Roster. Appendix D: Delivery Notes. Appendix E: Locomotive Statistics. Includes a bibliography.

AS IS! Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
