There has never been a collection of locomotive names like those on locomotives of the London & North Western Railway. Travellers on the L&NWR must have wondered at their extraordinary variety. Author the Rev. John Goodman provides details of the named locomotives owned by the L&NWR and its constituent companies, including the Grand Junction and the Liverpool & Manchester railways, the Bolton & Leigh and North Union railways, and of the Lancaster & Carlisle and several companies which were absorbed into it. It covers all the names dating from the times of King William IV to the withdrawal of Sirocco, the last L&NWR name to survive in June 1949, and analyses the naming policy through the succession of Chief Mechanical Engineers. The Company policy of re-using engine names over and over again is fully documented and a glossary of every name is included. The last section was written as the result of the considerable correspondence following the 1994 publication of LMS Locomotive Names necessitating corrections and providing much entirely new information. The chapters on Regimental names and a much expanded list of naming ceremonies are particularly welcome.
