The Locomotive (its esthetics) By Raymond Loewy. First published in 1937, and long out of print, LOCOMOTIVE is re-issued in 1988, the year after Loewy's death at the age of 94.  This book selects the most modern, effective and dynamic locomotive design of his age, bridging the transition between stream and diesel and selected on a worldwide basis. Loewy's LOCOMOTIVE is a dramatic statement of belief in the future vision of the 1930s.
