Minnesota Railroads; A Photographic History 1940-2012

Remarkable photographs, many never before published, take us inside the cab of a monumental steam locomotive, which hauled iron ore from the Mesabi Range, and into the lounge car of the luxurious North Coast Limited streamliner.

Missouri Pacific Diesel Power
By Kevin Eudaly
A chronicle of the history of the diesel on the Missouri Pacific, its predecessors, and subsidiaries. From the tiniest switcher purchased at the dawn of dieseldom, to the latter-day behemoths employed to move massive tonnage, the Missouri Pacific had a fascinating fleet of diesel power. Sleek E-units and unique baby-faced Baldwins whisked passengers across the MoPac system. Fs and geeps spelled the end of steam, and EMD standardization in turn replaced the early diesel fleet. The T&P and C&EI added interest to the roster as well, adding a number of models to the MoPac fold. The Alton and Southern added a splash of yellow.

Model Railroading with John Allen
By Linn H. Westcott
An American model railroader who created the famous HO scale Gorre & Daphetid model railroad in Monterey, California and authored numerous magazine articles on model railroading starting in the 1940s. Allen was renowned for his skill at scratch building and creating scenery. He also pioneered the technique of weathering his models for a more realistic appearance. In addition to his super-detailing of locomotives, rolling stock, structures, and scenery, Allen was known for populating his model world with scale figures of various kinds that helped him present humorous scenes to visitors to his layout and viewers of his photographs. Other techniques Allen promoted were realistic train operation and the use of forced perspective to create the illusion of a model railroad layout larger than it really was. Unfortunately, his layout was largely destroyed by fire shortly after his untimely death. This book brings his amazing creation back to life not only in the photographs but also through Lynn Westcott's informative and intelligent text. 114 pages.
