I was looking for a copy of this book on my local library site,and somehow ended up here:
http://www.fastonline.org/CD3WD_40/JF/424/19-423.pdf.
It turns out this is an online copy of this book,which is long out of print(1975 was the last issue,afaik).
They also have "model boilers and boilermaking"by the same author:
http://www.fastonline.org/CD3WD_40/JF/424/19-422.pdf
A quick peek has revealed some really interesting engines,with some drawings for the simpler ones.The photo's are very dark though,but beggars can't be choosers.

What a find! Harris is classic steam. These books are a must for the library.

Bentprop,

I have a copy of the 2000 reprint of the Model engine book, and while some photos are still quite dark they possible are not as bad as the scanned copy. If there are any specific photos your after I'd be more than happy to scan/photograph them and see if they come out better.

Tony.
