"From the 1830s to today, the railroad industry has developed myriad complex mechanisms to help keep North America's railroad rights-of-ways safe, efficient, and relatively accident-free.

"In this paperback rerelease of the successful 2003 title, the otherwise-arcane world of railroad signaling is explained in concise language and brought to life with nearly 200 fantastic photographs that depict signaling history and all aspects of modern operations. Author and photographer Brian Solomon brings his wealth of knowledge and photographic talent to a subject that has not often been tackled in book form, yet is integral to the American railroad experience."
