North American Railroads: The Illustrated Encyclopedia

Railroad and train enthusiasts also love and are interested in the actual railroads that the trains run on. The best and greatest North American railroads are all presented in the new book, North American Railroads: The Illustrated Encyclopedia.

This richly illustrated encyclopedia of classic and contemporary American railroads features concise histories of 101 U.S. and Canadian railroads from the 1840s to the present. Illustrated with period and modern photography in both color and black and white, evocative print ads and system maps, each profile is also accompanied by one or more fact boxes offering details on the railroads' geographic scope, hardware, and freight and passenger operations.

Spanning more than a century and a half, this giant compendium of "fallen flags," Class I behemoths, classic regional carriers and transportation icons is sure to become the go-to resource for railfans of all stripes. As author Brian Solomon puts it succinctly, "With this book, I've distilled the essence of America's greatest railroads."

Thoroughly researched and beautifully illustrated, North American Railroads: The Illustrated Encyclopedia will appeal to both the serious railway/train enthusiast as well as the casual fan—and will make a great gift. Softcover, 10 ¾ x 9 ¼", 320 pages, 439 color photos.
