In the space of a decade, the motive power used on Britain's railway network has been revolutionised. Privatisation has swept away much of the inheritance from British Rail and new types of locomotives and multiple units are now seen throughout the country. This single comprehensive volume, written by one of the foremost experts on the subject, Colin Marsden, covers all the types of locomotives and multiple units currently in operation on the national network.Historically, one of Ian Allan Publishing's most successful ranges of publications for the railway enthusiast was the 'Recognition' series. These volumes were designed to aid the enthusiast to differentiate between motive power seen across the national network. These books went through many editions over the years reflecting the changes that occurred in the 1980s and early 1990s. Now, with the number of different classes reduced, it is possible to produce a single volume covering all the types of locomotives and multiple units which are currently in operation on the national network.Adopting the style of the earlier, and highly successful volumes, this book provides a detailed technical description of each class featured. This is linked to a range of photographs portraying variants within classes and the different liveries they carry. The book is now illustrated throughout in colour. Comprehensive in its coverage, "Traction Recognition", includes information on both those types of first-generation equipment which are still in service, albeit in rapidly diminishing numbers, and the vast array of new equipment which has entered since the 1990s.
