Amtrak Across America

An Illustrated History

By John A Fostik.

Softcover, 8.5x11", 128 glossy pages, 260 color and b/w photos, 2012.

"Amtrak is an essential part of America's transportation system, today for over 28 million passengers. From the legacy Streamliners of the pre-Amtrak era - Champions, Chiefs, Eagles, Rockets, Zephyrs - to today's modern Acela Express and future plans for more high speed ''corridor trains,'' this book covers all the lines from past to present.

"Through the use of evocative photos, postcards, memorabilia and other collateral, this book is a journey through the past 40 years of Amtrak across America and all the preceding rail lines that transformed the nation."
