Entitled 'L.B.S.C's famous 4-4-0 Virginia: Live Steam Locomotive Construction', published in 1976 by Model & Allied Publications, 190pp, ISBN 0852424116, this book was produced in answer to requests that LBSC should design a real pioneer days type locomotive redolent of cowboys and indians and the opening up of the West of the United States. His North American following should be well pleased with the result.
