Untitled Document North American Steam Locomotive Builders and Their Insignia by Harold Davies

8.5x11.5", 263 pages, color laminated hardcover

"While the steam locomotive today has a place in our hearts, in earlier years it was the key to continental commerce and conveyance. This book gives a fascinating look into the successes and failures of the locomotive builders, then on the cutting edge of technology.

"Each buider is considered in its place of toil. Philadelphia, Schenectady and Lima, Ohio are here with a host of other locations from New England to San Francisco. The Canadian builders are included.

"A well illustrated treasury for the enthusiast and an encyclopedia for research, including as if does 300 illustrations and a gallery of 290 builder's plates and number plates."
