Locomotives Illustrated

Bibliographers aptly consider this type of publication: grey literature. It is difficult to find and difficult to cite, and one is tempted to wonder why authors submit work to such series. Originally published by Ian Allan and later by RAS. Originally intended to exclude on the basis of being mainly pictorial, but the series (it is neither a part work, nor is it a proper journal) includes some excellent authors, notably Rowledge and Romans. Bibliographical chaos is ensured in that each Issue has three titles: a cover title, a title-page title and a title at the head of the text (the one used for the only copy inspected in depth). Would be glad of details of works falling in gaps. Many "turn up" on E-Bay and Abebooks and in piles at places like Weybourne station perhaps they should be known as Weybournes. The British Library regards them with utter contempt. Number 170 which closed the publication explains much, but does not index authors, but does listt titles
