From Stretton's valuable and interesting book, "The Locomotive Engine and its Development," we learn that early in the year the Delaware and Hudson Canal Company, having heard of the success of the Stockton and Darlington Railway, sent Mr. Horatio Allen over to England with instructions to obtain information and purchase rails and locomotives. First published in , this work remains the best single source on the development of steam locomotives for those interested in their inner workings and technical specifications. Most of the more recent offerings on the subject are primarily nostalgic picture books celebrating the outward design of the great engines of the past. Sinclair spent half a lifetime operating locomotives before.

In A History of the American Locomotive: Its Development, , historian John H. White devotes a chapter of his book to the “Talisman,” which he calls “a typical Paterson wagon top of the mid ’s.”.   Locomotive offers a comprehensive look at steam trains, the building of the transcontinental railroad, the Western expansion of the United States in the late s, and how railroads changed America: "Here covered wagons used to crawl, / foot by foot, mile by mile, / heading into the the Cheyenne lived / the Omaha and the Arapaho, the Pawnee and Dakota.5/5.

Many particulars are also given concerning railroad development. Diesel locomotives, technically known as diesel-electrics, came into widespread use following development of Electro-Motive Corporation’s (later, General Motors' Electro-Motive Division) EA/EB design, first tested on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (B&O) in The motive power's genesis, however, dates back even further to the World War I.

A steam locomotive is a locomotive whose primary power source is a steam engine. The most common form of steam locomotive also contains a boiler to generate the steam used by the engine. The water in the boiler is heated by burning combustible material – usually coal, wood, or oil – to produce steam.

Rudolf Diesel considered using his engine for powering locomotives in his book Theorie und Konstruktion eines rationellen Wärmemotors zum Ersatz der Dampfmaschine und der heute bekannten Verbrennungsmotoren.Narrated through first-hand accounts from the traveler to engineer, private citizen to political activitist this book explores the locomotive’s evolutionary development.
