Standard Railway Wagon Heywood Works was written by David Tandy, the SRW Chief Designer between 1971 and the closure of the facility in 1992.

David was one of the UK's most experienced wagon designers and in this book he covers the history of the SRW Heywood site and provides details of the 142 contracts undertaken there between 1965 and closure. These contracts covered the production of more modern wagon designs, almost all of which were for the Private Owner wagon industry.

David provides information on a number of innovations incorporated into wagon design during his period as Chief Designer before looking at each of the 142 contracts in detail. A large number of colour and black and white images along with drawings accompany the text.

A5 format comprising 128 pages, this publication will be of great interest to both general railway enthusiasts and modellers alike.
