François Marie Guyonneau de Pambour
A Practical Treatise on Locomotive Engines Upon Railways
Carey & Hart
Guyonneau de Pambour was a French civil engineer who specialized in steam engines. This 1840 translation of an earlier work was a study of steam locomotives in England and his own research on the amount of work that a steam locomotive could do upon a railroad. His work, along with the work of other scientists and engineers would be used by American locomotive designers and engineers to help improve American steam locomotives to meet the unique needs of American railroads.
