A Photographic History

By Michael Swift.

Cloth with dust jacket, horizontal 12x9", 192 glossy pages, color and b/w images thoughout. 2013.

"The dramatic history of American railroads from the early days of steam to the diesels and elecrics of today.

"This book provides a glorious illustrated history of American railroads examining the chronology, the companies, the locomotives --steam, electric, and diesel -- and preservation. This is a wonderful collection of photographs -- from the historic sepia-colored images of the early years of the nineteenth century through contemporary images of historic preserved railroads, to the sleek, powerful, modern diesel-electrics of the present."
