Ride the rails through the development and history of America's diesel-electric locomotives. Diesel-electric played a critical role in the industrialization of America. After WWII, diesels rapidly displaced the steam locomotive as the dominant source of motive power on the rails. This lavishly illustrated volume delivers detailed coverage of the development of the diesel including AC traction and the 800-horsepower beasts introduced in the mid 1990s. Solomon describes how diesels are operated and maintained today. Appendix lists where restored early diesels can be seen today.

Harold Cleaver ist auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Karriere als Fernsehjournalist. Über sein denkwürdiges Interview mit dem amerikanischen Präsidenten spricht man im ganzen Land, nicht nur in London. Man spricht aber auch über das gerade erschienene Buch seines Sohnes, ein kaum verschlüsselter Roman über seinen Vater: "Im Schatten des Allmächtigen". Und plötzlich ist ihm klar, dass er weg muss. Weg von der medialen Öffentlichkeit, weg von seiner langjährigen Lebensgefährtin und den gemeinsamen Kindern. Das Bedürfnis nach Stille ist übermächtig. Er bucht einen Flug nach Mailand und fährt in ein entlegenes Dorf in Südtirol, um dort eine Hütte "über der Lärmgrenze" zu finden, wo er für niemanden mehr erreichbar ist. Wochen später, eingeschneit in dieser abgelegenen Hütte, muss er feststellen, dass die Stille kein Garant für Ruhe ist und dass nichts so verstörend ist wie die Stimmen im eigenen Kopf.

“This comprehensive guide will assist the traveler in planning an excursion and executing it with minimum effort and maximum pleasure.” —Library Journal All Aboard—first published in 1995, and here completely revised and updated—is much more than just a mile-by-mile scenery guide for train travelers. It will make any trip smoother and more enjoyable with its insightful travel trips and information about how railroads operate. With trains attracting new riders in record numbers, the time is perfect for a new edition of All Aboard. All Aboard is more than an ordinary travel guide. The author tells us how and why the first railroads came about, describes the building of America’s trans-continental railroad, and explains how individual trains are operated. He also offers advice that can only come from a veteran traveler: booking trips, finding the lowest fares, avoiding pitfalls, packing for an overnight trip, what to do on board, whom to tip and how much. This new, fourth edition includes a new chapter about eight major railway stations, and is updated throughout with new information and photographs. It discusses Amtrak’s new locomotives and Viewliner sleeping cars, changes in rules regarding pets and bicycles on American trains, and much more. Jim Loomis writes frequently about train travel for Sunday newspaper travel sections and has ridden every one of Amtrak’s long-distance trains multiple times, logging nearly 200,000 miles. He is a member of the board of directors of the National Association of Railroad Passengers.
