Post subject:  Steam Loco design, training, illustration book set CD

This item is a CD containing 14 .pdf files that are scanned from the International Correspondance School (ICS) steam locomotive training series.

These books were used from the 1930s-1950s to train locomotive engineers. There are volumes on boiler design, valve gear, injectors, locomotive operation and more. The publisher has granted me permission to have the books electroncally scanned, and offer CDs of the scanned books for sale.

The price is $20, complete (no additional shipping charge in the U.S.)

What you will get: One CD containing 14 .pdf files.

There is one file for each of the 14 books in the set. Each book is 100-150 pages. They are FULLY TEXT SEARCHABLE. The CD works in a PC or Macintosh. The files are readable with the standard Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is already present on most computers. You can download the reader for free from Adobe if you don't have it.

The images in this ad were displayed from the actual .pdf files. I screen-captured them, converted them to JPGs, and posted them here. This gives you a good idea of the quality of the text and images in
these .pdf files.
