Details: Product description This large colorful volume highlights the late steam and early diesel era of America’s railroads during the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s. This era was a time of great upheaval and tremendous progress for rail lines. Trains of America focuses on the period of time when steam locomotives were replaced by diesels, when lighter rail was replaced by heavy welded rail, when centralized traffic control became the norm and when employee rosters were downsized. Its 204 pages contain nearly 400 large, all-color freight and passenger train photos taken on 85 different railroads throughout the U.S. and Canada, such as the NYC, SF, B&O, CP, C&O, Milwaukee, CGW, CNW, Burlington, EJ&E, FEC, GN, GM&O, IC, KCS, L&N, MP, Pennsy and WP. Trains of America recreates the past in a variety of memorable color scenes, from main line steam locomotives pulling mile-long freight trains to 44-ton diesels rambling with a box car or two through New England rural woods.
