The Engineering and History of Rocket: A Survey Report
From June 2000, George and Robert Stephenson's world-famous Rocket will once again be on public display at the Science Museum. This book describes the research project undertaken in 1999 at the National Railway Museum to investigate the locomotive's engineering and history through both industrial archaeology and archival research. Comprehensively illustrated, this is a fascinating exploration of the development of one of the British Industrial Revolution's most important and enduring icons, which will be of lasting value to anyone with an interest in both railway history and industrial archaeology.
