ILLUSTRATION FROM 'DIGGING BY STEAM'

A real steam engine enthusiast could surely improve his knowledge by reading Colin Tyler's, 'Digging by Steam.' Tyler says that despite all that has been written and the growth of the steam engine hobby, steam as it relates to digging has been almost ignored.

The text of the book reflects a true knowledge of the subject and shows evidence of alot of 'digging' on the author's part. What makes the book truly special, however, are the fine illustrations with their descriptive captions.

In a book of 177 pages, including a Foreward and an Index, there are 110 illustrations which illuminate the text and give graphic evidence of what the author is saying.



Tyler takes particular pleasure in having been able to assemble these photographs and engravings and line drawings. He believes he has gathered together the largest number on the subject ever to appear in one place.

To list all the pictures would be impossible in this space, but they include walking diggers, broadside diggers, models, traction engines, and cultivators.
