The book A Biographical Dictionary of Railway Engineers, by John Marshall (b. 1 May 1922), summarises the lives of more than 600 engineers from Europe and North America.
Each biographical entry is in summary form and concludes with a list of references. It includes an index, but no illustrations. A typical entry begins with the subject's birth and death dates, with places, and deals chronologically with the subject's railway career. Any writings by the subject are noted, and the concluding section gives page references to where the information came from, usually technical periodicals. The concluding index is of railway companies world wide and notes the engineers who worked for them.
The second edition now covers 752 names. A review of it appears in Journal of Transport History, March 2004.
