Описание: As soon as London won the bid to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2005, plans were put in place to deal with the enormous transport challenges that this would present. Over the seven-year period that followed, Transport for London oversaw a huge number of upgrades and infrastructure improvements to Londons transport network. The Docklands Light Railway had its capacity expanded by 50%; the Central, Jubilee and Victoria lines all had major upgrades, and a major new transport hub was developed at Stratford. There were also significant expansions and improvements to the bus network, a facelift for Kings Cross Station and the construction of entirely new projects such as the cable car link over the Thames. Accompanying these construction projects, was a major publicity campaign and planning process to ensure that the thousands of visitors could travel to the games as swiftly as possible, while allowing ordinary Londoners to carry on their daily lives. Heavily illustrated and filled with a wealth of fascinating information, this book celebrates the activities of Transport for London during this period and will appeal to all those interested in transport and the Olympics.
Many companies have built hundreds of farm tractors over the years, from the 1910 Case 110 steam tractor to the latest-model John Deere 8320R. The most innovative models changed farming for years afterwards and influenced the designs of other tractors. The most wildly popular tractors have sold in the hundreds of thousands.
Tractor Superstars focuses on these remarkable tractors, including technical information such as the engine, horsepower, rpm, top speed, and weight. A wide collection of detailed photographs makes this one book that no one interested in tractors, tractor collectors, or anyone nostalgic for farm life will want to miss.
