Synopsis

British Multiple Units by Andy Flowers.

Multiple units are the unsung heroes of the modern railway system. Their many advantages, as opposed to locomotive-hauled trains, include higher capacity, less track damage and lower operating costs, making them an ever more popular choice for modern, cost-conscious, railway operators.

This fully illustrated volume details the history of the major unit types that have operated on the UK’s rail network, beginning with the earliest Victorian-era steam railcars and going right up to the modern hybrid-powered multiple units currently under development.

The story is told through a selection of photographs, class details and tables listing the major unit types classified by propulsion types and generation.
