An era ended in 1960, when the major railroads in the United States dieselized. Having served the continent for more than a century, North America's most visible symbol of industrial supremacy was obsolete. In railroad yards everywhere, thousands of steam engines stood gathering rust or waiting silently for a call to service that never came; still more perished unceremoniously, sold off and cut up for scrap metal. But a handful of railroads went out of their way to keep steam alive. This stunning volume is a pictorial tribute to working steam in North America, beautifully illustrated and lovingly told. -- Includes prime examples of accurate restorations that illustrate the development of steam locomotives while evoking the mood of this exciting period in North American History -- Filled with discussions of the dedicated preservationists who have kept steam alive in an era when the cost of overhauling and maintenance has become an extravagance -- More than 100 pristine, black-and-white photographs capture some of the most beautiful and historic steam locomotives in operation today

Describing and detailing the boring of major railroad tunnels throughout Canada, the United States, and Mexico, this book covers the period from the creation of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Tunnel in the 1850s to Copper Canyon’s Continental and El Descanso tunnels in the early 1960s. Other notable tunnels featured here include Massachusetts’ notoriously expensive and slow-progressing Hoosac Tunnel; Colorado’s rail and water Moffat Tunnel; Montana’s Flathead Tunnel; and several major tunnels along the Canadian Pacific’s main line. In addition to providing details on the tunnels, the author considers the reasons they were created, their engineers, and their use. The book includes more than 50 period and contemporary photos. A glossary explains concepts related to railroad construction and maintenance.

For nearly half of the nation's history, the steam locomotive was the outstanding symbol for progress and power. It was the literal engine of the Industrial Revolution, and it played an instrumental role in putting the United States on the world stage. While the steam locomotive's basic principle of operation is simple, designers and engineers honed these concepts into 100-mph passenger trains and 600-ton behemoths capable of hauling mile-long freight at incredible speeds. American Steam Locomotives is a thorough and engaging history of the invention that captured public imagination like no other, and the people who brought it to life.

Richly illustrated with over 200 photos, this book tells the story of railroad streamliners, from their early days as short little articulated speedsters to their halcyon years as 20-car "cities on wheels"--Places that were going somewhere. And it also tells a story of a time of individuality, when streamliners reflected the personality of the regions they served.
