N&W: Giant of Steam

by Colonel Lewis Ingles Jeffries.

Cloth with dust jacket, 9x11.25", 350 pages, numerous photos and charts, index, appendixes, 2nd edition revised.

"The most definitive story of N&W steam ever written has been updated, revised, and re-printed!

"At the time of its original publication in 1980, this book, authored by Colonel Lewis Ingles Jeffries, gave us the story of N&W steam as complete as possible and as no other ever had... but as great it was, there were gaps in the information, due simply to the facts not beling available at that time.

That situation has now been corrected in this new, 350 page revised hardcover edition!

  • Dozens of new photos!
  • Increased coverages of operating policies and conditions!
  • Increased coverage of tenders!
  • All new chapter on predecessor and non-standard classes of motive power!
  • Improved coverage of the changes to each locomotive class throughout their lifetimes!
  • Greatly expanded chapter on the dieselization of the railroad, including coverage of the units leased by the N&W, and even Virginian passenger diesels."
