A technical rundown of Rocket forms only a part of this guide to the groundbreaking locomotive, presented in the Haynes workshop manual format. Further sections include the story of the Rainhill Trials and how the engine became the foundation of locomotive design thereafter, first-hand accounts of what it was like to operate and travel with Rocket, and an analysis of a series of working replicas that have been built since the 1880s, and what can be learned from them.
