This Belgian company was formed in 1838 and initially produced stationary steam engines for the local mining industry. Ten years later it started to build locomotives, initially for the state railway, the Centre and other local railways, and soon followed by designs for Spain, Russia, Poland and many African railways. This included various articulated types.
This book is a largely pictorial history of the company and its products. The coverage of the Golwe type is notable: this was a compact variant of the Garratt. It also includes a works list totalling 2211 numbers, out of which 1400 are steam locomotives. 260 pages A4, ca 400 photographs, hb.
