Tank Cars from American Car & Foundry, 1865-1955
By Edward S. Kaminski
This book shows many examples of the production of a major builder of these cars, American Car & Foundry, from 1865 until 1955. (In later years, tank car technology underwent major changes.) Covered are the tank cars built for ACF's own leasing company, Shippers Car Line; for private owners and railroads; and for other leasing companies, such as Union Tank Line, Conley Tank Car Company, and others. A chapter on tank car manufacturing and car details, and a collection of drawings of cars and components enrich the volume. The gradual introduction of standards of construction greatly influenced the appearance of tank cars, though in all eras cars were built to customer speciÞcations for speciÞc uses and cargoes. AC&F had its own standards for underframes, named by the year of their design, such as Type 4 (1904), Type 21 (1921), etc. Cars of these types and many custom designs are all shown in this book. Tank cars carried many cargoes, from water and petroleum to wine, chemicals and solvents, edible oils, asphalt, printing ink, liquid latex, acids, and liquiÞed gasses such as chlorine, ammonia, and propane. Special linings for certain cargoes, differing arrangements of domes and outlets, pressurized tanks and insulated jackets, all contributed to the distinctiveness of individual tank cars. Examples of these and many more cargo-carrying types of cars are shown here. 272 pages, 514 Photos, 31 Drawings, Ads, Graphics, Hardcover

Texas & New Orleans; SP's Line in Texas & Louisiana
By A.D. McLennan
There has long been a need for a thorough history of the Texas & New Orleans and its predecessors, from the beginnings in the mid-19th century, through linking El Paso and New Orleans in 1883, to the merger with Southern Pacific in 1961. This book fills that need.

The 400 Story, C&NW passenger Trains
By Jim Scribbins
Three midwestern railroads introduced luxury passenger service in 1935, competing for Chicago–Twin Cities business and leisure travelers. Chicago and North Western’s modern, sleek, and fast rail line began with a conventional steam-powered train dubbed the “400” and named after its ambitious schedule: “400 miles in 400 minutes.” In 1939, it evolved into an even faster diesel-powered streamlined train, eventually expanding into a fleet of streamliners that served Wisconsin, Minnesota, and upper Michigan. 225 B&W pages.

The Classic Western American Railroad Routes
By Bruce Clement Cooper
In 1869 the east and west coasts of the USA were at last linked by rail, launching what is now known as the “golden age of the railroad.” Within twenty years several other major transcontinental routes had been opened, and the railroad companies who had invested millions of dollars need to attract both freight and passengers. To celebrate these pioneering routes, the railroad companies, enterprising publishers and even the United States Geological Service, produced a large quantity of colorful literature, including souvenir books, foldout postcards and illustrated maps. This exciting volume, packed with rare railroadiana and expertly-written text, brings those wonderful days back to life! 320 pages, B&W and Color, Hardcover.

The Elgin Joliet & Eastern Railway
By Patrick C. Dorin
The Elgin, Joliet & Eastern Railway was well described by its slogan, "Around -- Not Thru Chicago." For most of a century, it was owned by United States Steel, and was a critical freight conduit for both U.S. Steel's Gary Works and its South Chicago Works, but also served many other shippers along its 130-mile line. In addition, it interchanged with fully 35 railroads around Chicago, carriers from the north, west, east and south, making it a busy interchange and transfer road also. The focal points of operations on this 130-mile railroad were the two major yards at East Joliet and Gary (Kirk Yard). Locomotive servicing as well as heavy freight switching typified these facilities, and both local freight service and inter-road transfer runs operated from these yards. Along with a complete railroad history, the steam locomotive roster is illustrated and presented in this book, along with the same information for the diesel era. Probably the most distinctive "signature" motive power of the EJ&E was its Baldwin center-cab transfer diesels, of which they owned 27 units, more than all other railroads combined. This fine volume of history, enriched with 230 photographs (93 in color), most never before published, and 12 maps and drawings, along with detailed equipment histories and several summary chapters about EJ&E freight cars, is the most complete account of the history and operation of the EJ&E ever published. Rail historians and modelers, esepcially those interested in Chicago-area railroads, will be enthralled with this book, but the many fans of mainline railroading will find it interesting and enjoyable too. Pat Dorin, a well-known rail historian, worked for the EJ&E at one time, and has drawn on company records and employee interviews for this history of the road. In addition to operational details, complete descriptions of both steam and diesel motive power, and of the freight car fleet, are included. The dust jacket watercolor is based on a photograph by Russ Porter. 176 pages, 230 Photos (93 in Color), Hardcover.

The Great Railroad War: United States Railway Operations During World War I
By Rudolph L. Daniels
World War I was the first worldwide conflict of its kind, requiring mass mobilizations at unrivaled levels. Tasked to move troops, equipment, ammunition, and supplies around the clock, American railroads were pushed to the precipice of failure. Despite the difficulties, American railroads and railroaders had a profound impact on the war effort. This book is the story of the unpreparedness of the railroads for an unprecedented war, the 1918 government takeover to ensure safety and peak operating efficiency, and the subsequent relinquishment of the railroads with the groundbreaking Transportation Act of 1920. Daniels discusses the operational details of United States rail shipments both at home and abroad, and how these operations interplayed and overlapped with military operations in France and Russia. 159 pages, B&W, Softcover.

The Illinois Terminal Railroad; the Road of Personalized Services
By Dale Jenkins
The Illinois Terminal Railroad that vanished into the Norfolk & Western Railroad in 1981 was a markedly different creature than it was as an infant some 75 years earlier. With its arch-windowed electric cars flashing though the fertile central Illinois countryside or trundling through city streets past humming substations, the Illinois Traction System was the epitome of classic interurban carriers in a short-lived epoch of American transportation. Electric interurban and streetcar railways helped civilize the nation's cities while bridging the gap between horse-and-buggy era and the automobile age. A number of small upstart railway companies eventually grew into the far-flung Illinois Traction System. in the early days Midwesterners were served by ITS passenger and freight operations at a time when interurbans were simply a way of life that most people assumed would never end. Interurbans came and went with alarming frequency in the early part of the 20th Century. Insufficient capital, competition from parallel steam railroads, the coming of the automobile age, and the Great Depression together or separately proved to be formidable foes for most interurban lines. But the strong survived. Radical change beginning at the end of the "Roaring Twenties" propelled the largest of all interurbans, "The Traction," into the ranks of big-time railroading. World War II and the years immediately after were merciless on American railroads, especially with changes in U.S. transportation policies. Cast aside by America's new focus on highway and air transport, the railroads were forced to make radical transformations or succumb to "progress." The IT entered this period still very much an interurban, relying largely on electric power to transport freight and passengers, but it left as an all-diesel, freight-only company. Beginning in 1956, the railroad found itself in a completely new venue; a unique one, in some respects, compared to other rail carriers, because the IT was now a ward of a contigent of "steam" railroads. The end of the sotry revolves around the tenacity of the railroad and its leaders, and it holds still more lessons in how a company adapted (and did so quickly) to survive in an increasing ruthless, obstacle-ridden corporate world. Yet the Illinois Terminal remained an immensely fascinating operation, right up to the end. 238 pages, B&W and Color, Hardcover.

The Iowa Route; History of Burlington, Cedar Rapid & Northern Railway
By Don Hofsommer
The Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern Railway was an important part of the commercial life of the upper Midwest during the age of railways. Don L. Hofsommer uses the BC&N as the vehicle for his investigation of the birth, evolution, and disappearance of an important regional carrier, offering an inside look at the struggles of a small railway to stay relevant while railroad empires were being built. More than a bit player, the BC&N might have become even more important had plans gone forward to utilize its rails in a campaign to reach the Pacific. The struggle of the Cedar Rapids road and its corporate ancestors to place Minneapolis–St. Paul and St. Louis in competition with Chicago via a north/south route forms a major part of the book’s narrative, and the book also offers a history of the company's three-state service territory (Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota) from the dawn of the age of railways into the 20th century. The book includes more than 200 photographs selected from Hofsommer’s extensive library of historic photographs documenting the history of the BC&N Railway. 285 pages, 200+ Photos, Hardcover.

The Magor Car Company
By Edward S. Kaminski
The Magor Car Corporation, located in northern New Jersey at Clifton, was a significant railcar builder throughout much of the twentieth century. It had its origins in a partnership founded in 1899 by Basil Magor and Robert Wonham, which led in 1902 to a manufacturing operation called the Wonham-Magor Engineering Works. In the first part of the century, Magor concentrated on export railcars, aided by its proximity to the port of New York. Basil's brother, Robert Magor, also became associated with the company, and in 1910 it became the Magor Car Company. It was incorporated in 1917 as the Magor Car Corporation; among its major stockholders was J.P. Morgan. In 1914, Magor's first freight cars for revenue use on an American railroad were built, and such sales grew steadily thereafter, though export cars continued as the company's mainstay for some years. In 1918, Magor was among the many firms which built cars for the United States Railroad Administration as part of its effort to construct 100,000 standard freight cars. During World Wars I and II as well as during the Korean conflict, Magor was called on for thousands of export cars for military needs, and was also a principal builder of cars for Europe under the Marshall Plan. In 1959, Magor built its first aluminum-bodied covered hopper cars, which were also the first to be placed in U.S. revenue service, and went on to build more than 5000 aluminum cars. Magor's sale in 1964 to Fruehauf Corporation marked many changes in its activities, among which was the dissolution of the joint sales operation with National Steel Car Corp. of Canada, an arrangement in effect since Basil Magor founded that firm in 1911. Declining railcar sales during the 1960s led to Magor's closure in 1973. Magor was an important builder of American freight cars, though not one of the larger builders. Its history is a significant part of United States railroad history. 200 pages, 237 photos, Drawings, Graphics, Hardcover.

The Majesty of Big Steam
By Brian Soloman
Relive the romance and power of the steam locomotive era, the product of a century of continuous research and development.In the United States, the final decades of steam power were characterized by very large and capable locomotives. Beginning in the 1920s with Alco's three-cylinder types and Lima's "Super Power" concept, steam locomotive design crossed new thresholds of power and efficiency.A host of new wheel arrangements combined with innovative technology and new materials to create a final generation of refinement. Lima's Berkshire of 1925 demonstrated the value of the four-wheel radial trailing truck in its ability to support a firebox large enough to supply high power and fast running. Within a few years the 2-10-4 Texas, 4-6-4 Hudson, and 4-8-4 Northern had led the way, and by the late 1920s, large modern articulated types were taking shape."The Majesty of Big Steam" is full of these late-era locomotives, the last generation of steam power before the diesels took over.Dramatic photos show Berkshires, Hudsons, and Northerns at work, as well as massive articulateds at their finest. Witness New York Central's "Great Steel Fleet" being whisked along behind some of the most refined American-designed engines. See Southern Pacific's cab-forward oil burners crest the California Sierra, and Baltimore & Ohio's EM-1 war babies lift tonnage over the Appalachian mountains. Norfolk & Western continued to refine 4-8-4s and articulated types, even as the rest of America was buying diesels, and ran these well-oiled machines longer than any other line.

The McCloud River Railroads
By Jeff Moore
The McCloud River country, south and east of towering Mt. Shasta, was one of the premier potential logging territories of California in the late 19th century. A number of small operators were already in the area, though limited by inadequate transportation, when the McCloud River Lumber Company was incorporated in 1896. The following year, the McCloud River Railroad Company was begun by the same owners.
From its inception,into the 1950s, the McCloud lumber mill was busy, and contributed steady traffic to the railroad. But as the available timber harvest declined, the lumber company and its railroad were sold to United States Plywood in 1963. The remnants of log movement by rail were terminated, and both timber harvest and railroad operations altered. In 1967, U.S. Plywood merged with Champion Paper, and a few years later the merged entity became Champion International.
Leasing company Itel purchased a number of shortline railroads in the late 1970s, including the McCloud River Railroad. Some of those lines primarily served as lessors of Incentive Per Diem or IPD box cars (as did the McCloud), but the large, well-equipped railroad shop at McCloud was an additional attraction for the leasing company.
The boom in IPD boxcar leasing was lucrative for a time, but virtually collapsed by 1981. At around the same period, the timber industry all but departed from the McCloud River country, removing the primary freight traffic from the railroad. In 1992, Itel sold the railroad to the Forbis family. They incorporated a new company, the McCloud Railway Company, to conduct operations, and continued through 2008, including the popular Shasta Sunset Dinner Train. But by 2009 traffic had all but vanished, and most of the railroad was scrapped. Included here are more than 385 photographs, many in color and published for the first time, and 41 maps and drawings. The book contains detailed chapters on the history of the different periods of the railroad operation. Traffic data, rosters of locomotives and rolling stock, and financial data are also included. Maps were drawn by John R. Signor using information from the author, with an endsheet map also by Signor. Shortline fans everywhere, and particularly those enthused about logging operatioins, will be enthralled with this book, but the McCloud’s mainline connections mean that many fans of Western railroading will find it interesting and enjoyable too.

The Milwaukee Road Diesel Power
By Frederick Hyde and Dale Sanders
The Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad began its journey with diesel electric locomotives in 1939, initially sampling small switching locomotives. The Milwaukee's diesel power journey culminated with a fleet of over 300 locomotives when the road was purchased by Soo Line in 1985. This book covers the entire history of The Milwaukee Road's eclectic diesel roster from the humble beginnings of the diesel era through the sale of the road to the SOO. Detailed coverage is provided on each model in the Milwaukee's locomotive fleet (including its home built Bulldog motor cars and industrial switchers). The multitude of paint schemes that adorned the fleet is also examined as is the road's complex locomotive renumbering and retirement information. Many of the Milwaukee's diesels continued operating on other railroads well into the 21st century; many will continue to operate for years to come while several have found homes in museums. Join the authors as they explore in detail the fascinating diesel locomotive fleet of The Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad! 256 pages, Color and B&W Photos, Rosters, Dispositions, Hardcover.

The New Haven Railroad in the McGinnis Era
By Marc J. Frattasio
The New Haven Railroad, though relatively small in size, was an operation that truly had it all. The New Haven's 225-mile-long "Shore Line Route" main line linked Boston and New York City while its many branches served southern New England, in its day one of the most densely populated and heavily industrialized regions of the United States. To satisfy the broad service requirements of its territory, the New Haven maintained a diversity of passenger and freight equipment completely out of proportion to its size. The New Haven was one the few railroads that could boast of having operated steam, diesel, and electric locomotives (simultaneously) during the modern era. Although the New Haven was always an interesting railroad, it took on a larger than life character after Patrick B. McGinnis became its president on April 14, 1954. Unquestionably the most outspoken and controversial railroad executive of his time, McGinnis believed that the ailing railroad industy's greatest handicap was its lack of modern thinking and that his ideas, if universally adopted, could lead railroading into the future. McGinnis used the New Haven as a laboratory to test his many bold ideas for revitalizing the railroad industry. As a result of his experiments and flair for publicity, the New Haven remained fixed in the public spotlight throughout the 22 months of his administration as no other railroad has ever been, before or since. With the help of over 500 illustrations, author Marc Frattasio tells the full story of the New Haven under Patrick McGinnis, from the bitter battle to wrest the railroad away from Frederic C. Dumaine, Jr., through the financial chicanery and turmoil that ultimately forced McGinnis to step down. In between are the details of experiments with high speed passenger trains, the colorful corporate image and architectural design programs, new locomotives and equipment, the commuter insurrection, efforts to merge the New Haven with the Boston & Maine, the hurricanes and floods of 1954 and 1955, the General Motos pla, and many other interesting aspects of the New Haven in the McGinnis era. The events of the McGonnis era are framed with in the broader context of the New Haven's overall history and a look at Patrick McGinnis' tumultuous careers on the Norfolk & Southern, the Central of Georgia, and the Boston & Maine. 256 pages, B&W and Color, Hardcover.

The Omaha Road; Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha
By Stan Mailer
Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway was part and parcel of Chicago & North Western's midwest empire. As a country cousin, the Omaha Road functioned in concert with C&NW's main line across Wisconsin, and provided the northern reaches of the empire with access to Lake Superior ports before 1912 - a highly competitive exercise. The prize included the historic St. Croix Land Grant, which was sought by aggressive and prominent lumber barons.... "The Omaha Road had its origins in West Wiconsin Railway. Begun at Tomah, WI, it was at that time a springboard community to the Northwest after the Civil War. "The contemporary Omaha, at least in the steam era, ran modest trains and, in the end, carried pulpwood logs. There was the fast track through Augusta and Black River Falls, grounds for the TWIN CITIES 400 to perform at high speed. It was alos ten-wheeeler land - the hweel arrangement best suited for handling local traffic on remote branch lines, which often required heavy snowplows." 311 pages, profusely illustrated, maps, rosters, Hardcover.

Before the Civil War, Cincinnati was the biggest town in “The West” - larger than St. Louis, and far larger than Chicago or Cleveland. Once the Pennsylvania Railroad reached Pittsburgh, Cincinnati was the great inland city to which the Railroad had to connect. This book brings together photos, historical materials, and company records from sources both local and nationwide. It thus combines knowledge and images never before brought together. The book explores yards, stations, interlocking plants, and motive power over the 100 years the Pennsy came into Cincy, and shows that this part of the System was made up of both “standard” and highly nonstandard components. 160 pages, 305 Photos, Maps, Tables, Posters, Track Diagrams, Softcover.

The Railroad Photography of Jack Delano 
By Tony Reevy, Foreword by Pablo Delano

Born in the Ukraine, photographer Jack Delano moved to the United States in 1923. After graduating from Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1937, Delano worked for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) and the Office of War Information (OWI) as a photographer. Best known for his work for the Office of War Information during 1940–1943, Jack Delano captured the face of American railroading in a series of stunning photographs. His images, especially his portraits of railroad workers, are a vibrant and telling portrait of industrial life during one of the most important periods in American history. This remarkable collection features Delano’s photographs of railroad operations and workers taken for the OWI in the winter of 1942/43 and during a cross-country journey on the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway, plus an extensive selection of his groundbreaking color images. The introduction provides the most complete summary of Delano’s life published to date. Both railroad and photography enthusiasts will treasure this worthy tribute to one of the great photographers of the thirties and forties. Hardcover, 186 pages, Color and B&W.

The Rock Island Line
By Bill Marvel
This richly illustrated volume tells the story of a legendary railroad whose tracks spanned the Midwest, serving farms and small-town America for more than 140 years. One of the earliest railroads to build westward from Chicago, it was the first to span the Mississippi, advancing the frontier, bringing settlers into the West, and hauling their crops to market. Rock Island’s celebrated Rocket passenger trains also set a standard for speed and service, with suburban runs as familiar to Windy City commuters as the Loop. For most of its existence, the Rock battled competitors much larger and richer than itself and when it finally succumbed, the result was one of the largest business bankruptcies ever. Today, as its engines and stock travel the busy main lines operated by other carriers, the Rock Island Line lives on in the hearts of those whom it employed and served. 169 pages, 104 Color and 42 B&W Photos, Hardcover.

The Southern Pacific in Los Angeles 1873-1996
By Larry Mullaly & Bruce Petty
The Southern Pacific in Los Angeles, 1873-1996 tells the fascinating story of how steel rails transformed an isolated ranching and agricultural center into the West’s greatest city. With the aid of maps, timetables and many hitherto unpublished photographs, the book recounts how the Southern Pacific began its Los Angeles Division operations at the edge of San Pedro Bay in 1873, and never looked back as it constantly adapted to a changing metropolis.
It is all told here: the round-the-clock switching operations that were the lifeblood of a great city; the glamour of the Daylight, the most beautiful train in the West, rushing north from Los Angeles along the Pacific Coast; the enormous crowds of soldiers and civilians overflowing the city’s newly built Union Station at the height of World War II. We learn of the Southern Pacific’s transcontinental streamliners based in Los Angeles and how their gleaming diesel locomotives doomed SP’s great Los Angeles General Shops and the culture which sustained them.
For 123 years, the destinies of the Southern Pacific and the City of Los Angeles were intertwined. The Southern Pacific in Los Angeles, 1873-1996 chronicles the railroad’s remarkable growth, and also its demise. This unforgettable walk through time recaptures the pulse of the Far West’s most powerful railroad, and its extraordinary role in shaping the City of Angels. 286 pages, 585 Photos, Hardcover.

The State Belt; San Francisco’s Water Front Railroad
By William H. Kaufman and Michelle S. Kaufman
This book explains the history of the railroad that served San Francisco’s waterfront for over a century. The entire area of the waterfront was owned by the State of California, and therefore so was the railroad. It served all the waterfront piers, from Fisherman’s Wharf in the north, to China Basin in the south, and had track beyond Fisherman’s Wharf, through a tunnel, to Army facilities at Fort Mason and the Presidio.
But switching the piers was only part of the State Belt’s duties. It also served many dozens of industries and warehouses adjoining the waterfront. Interchange with the rest of the United States took place by car float (with the Santa Fe, Northwestern Pacific and Western Pacific) and on land with the Southern Pacific near China Basin.
Until 1946, the Belt used steam switch engines, but then in rapid succession acquired six Alco S-2 switchers, being among the first American railroads to achieve complete dieselization.
A number of major events in San Francisco history, from the Earthquake of 1906, to the Panama Pacific Exposition of 1915, World Wars I and II, and the Great Depression, all affected the State Belt and in a number of cases, gave the Belt a role to play as well.
But change was arriving all too rapidly. Many industries moved out of San Francisco, and containerization of seaborne freight traffic increased in the 1960s and 1970s. The need for the services of the State Belt just kept decreasing. In 1969, the City of San Francisco finally acquired title to its Port and to the State Belt; they soon contracted with Kyle Railways in 1973 to operate the railroad. This lasted until 1993. But many remnants of the Belt and its operation remain to be seen in San Francisco.
Extensive research was required to locate photographs and history of a railroad that did a lot of its work at night. It is richly documented with 242 photos, most never before published, with informative maps and an index. This definitely is a book for rail historians and for anyone interested in rail-marine connections and in the operation of freight railroads. 172 pages, 242 photos, 61 in Color, 15 Maps, Hardcover.

The Streamline Era
By Robert C. Reed
The Streamline Era by Robert C. Reed presents the complete streamline story as it relates to transportation. Streamlining was first applied technologically to the design of machines in motion — trains and locomotives, airplanes, automobiles, and ships — where swift movement was significant. The term was based on the scientific fact that smooth surfaces with unbroken corners offered the least resistance to air currents; hence, the idea of stream-lined, assuring the greatest potential for power and speed. This book describes every aspect of streamlining, from the sweeping popularity of Art Deco, based on the style of the Bauhaus School of Design, to the influence of industrial designers such as Cret, Dreyfus, Bel Geddes, Kuhler and Loewy. Even several precursory experiments in the streamlining of trains dating back to 1832 are covered. The evolution of semi-streamlining of steam locomotives, the coming of the Burlington’s famous Zephyr and Union Pacific’s colorful City of Salina streamliners, the mad rush by America’s railroads to streamline the passenger train, the invasion of the diesel locomotive which established uniformity and conformity in motive power, and those unique makeshift streamliner conversions by depression-poor railroads are all accounted for. Full chapters are devoted to streamlining of trains around the world, the streamlining of airplanes, and the development of the streamlined automobile. While true technological streamlining began on the railroads, it was of relatively short duration. Railroad streamlining began fading as America entered into World War II. Aesthetic streamlining continued to influence transportation throughout the 1940s and ’50s and its form is evidenced even today. Concluding chapters reflect a study of this continuing influence. 298 pages, 500 Photos, Hardcover.

The Tootin' Louie
By Don L. Hofsommer
The Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway (M&StL), affectionately known as the Tootin' Louie, was founded in 1870 to serve a Minneapolis business community threatened by powerful railway interests emerging from both Chicago and Milwaukee. Although its goal of providing a direct rail artery to St. Louis proved elusive, the M&StL became a 1,600-mile road that supplied essential freight and passenger carriage to the Midwest over its ninety-year existence. In The Tootin' Louie, railroad historian Don L. Hofsommer offers a comprehensive biography of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway and its Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, and Illinois service areas from the dawn of the steamcar civilization into the post-World War II era. Incorporating an extraordinary collection of primary research documents, including station records and dispatchers' reports, Hofsommer brings the M&StL to life by vividly portraying the lives and times of the people involved in the railroad. His conversational style allows the reader to virtually see the workers, hear their stories, and sense their disappointments. The Tootin' Louie showcases the human dimension of railroading, emphasizing that the M&StL was long-lived primarily due to the loyalty of the communities and companies it served. Also a chronicle of business in the upper Midwest, this book reveals how the M&StL carried flour, lumber, even movie reels and beer between states and was often transportation for family reunions and other recreational excursions. Deeply connected to the Upper Midwest, the railroad company prospered and suffered with the communities it served. Essential reading for railway buffs and transportation historians nationwide, The Tootin' Louie is the ultimate guide to the M&StL and its place in an era of economic, social, and industrial change. 375 pages, 97 B&W Photos, Hardcover.

The Twilight of Steam: Great Photography from the Last Days of Steam Locomotives in America
By Brian Solomon
It's remarkable to consider that, not that long ago, a good chunk of American commerce was carried out by huge steam-powered leviathans. Even as the Interstate and jet engines were revolutionizing the way people traveled and shipped goods, steam locomotives continued to toil across North American rails. Of course, steam locomotives weren't long for this world. Today, they may be mostly gone, but they're far from forgotten--railfan interest in steam power remains keen. In "The Twilight of Steam," acclaimed rail author and photographer Brian Solomon gathers some of the greatest black-and-white photography from well-known rail photographers who were plying their trade trackside in the years when steam was fading from the rail scene. Gorgeous large-format images show famed steam locomotive types at work and at rest all over the U.S. and Canada. From the high plains to mountain passes, from city stations to scrapyards, these evocative images capture an historical era of railroading. To add context, the photographs are accompanied by the recollections of many of the photographers represented, while detailed captions provide information about the locomotives and scenes pictured. While successful monographs have previously presented the work of acclaimed rail photographers, none have provided a survey representing a range of operations and regions quite like this collection. 192 pages, Hardcover.

The Uintah Railway: The Gilsonite Route
By Henry E. Bender, Jr.
This book tells the story of the only railroad to penetrate the vast Uintah Basin of western Colorado and eastern Utah.

The Visalia Electric Railroad; Southern Pacific's Orange Grove Route
By Phillips C. Kauke
From its beginnings in 1904 until abandonment of most trackage in 1992, the Visalia Electric Railroad had a fascinating history. Built as an electric line which pioneered 15-cycle alternating current in the United States, it operated orange interurban cars along its 30-mile route until 1924. Serving the Sierra Nevada foothill region of eastern Tulare County, the VE became a local fixture as towns and agriculture developed. From the outset in 1904, the Visalia Electric Railroad had all its stock owned by the Southern Pacific. Primarily serving the growing areas east of Exeter, branches extended eastward toward Sequoia National Park, and southward to Strathmore. After passenger service ended in 1924, electric freight operations continued until 1944. Thereafter, diesels provided service, from GE 44-tonners to handed-down SP Alco and EMD switchers. Loss of perishable traffic finally doomed the line, and the last significant trackage was abandoned in 1992. In its heyday, the VE carried out a variety of operations, all described in this volume, from passenger excursions and commuting, to electric and gas-electric freight service to numerous packing sheds along the line. Though owned by Southern Pacific, many aspects of operations were locally controlled until 1964. Ownership of locomotives, motor cars, cabooses, and other rolling stock is all presented here, in photographs and rosters. Some 249 photographs, most previously unpublished, and 15 maps, enrich the book. Phil Kauke has worked many years assembling information and collecting photographs to create this history. That it is now appearing will gratify not only electric traction fans, but also enthusiasts of the Southern Pacific, as this small but vital part of the system was quite interesting in its own right. Every rail-fan who ever saw a photograph of a 44-ton locomotive lettered "Visalia Electric" understands that interest. 168 pages, 240 Photos, 21 Maps, Drawings, Rosters, Hardcover.

Trackside Maryland; From Railyard to Main Line
By James P. Gallagher and Jacques Kelly
In the 1950s, as railroads underwent major changes, some marginal lines stood on the brink of extinction. Steam locomotives grew scarcer by the month, as did rail passenger connections. With a keen eye for location and composition, James Gallagher in Trackside Maryland captures the drama and majesty of steam transportation in Maryland in its waning days, when passing trains left clouds of cinders and smoke behind them and the sound of steam whistles still echoed across the landscape -- all these sights and sounds giving way to modern diesel locomotives. Here Jacques Kelly's evocative prose accompanies Gallagher's ever vigilant lens. We are transported back to the last years of steam railroading. 224 pages, B&W.

Trains to Victory; America's Railroads in WWII
By Donald J. Heimburger and John Kelly
Trains to Victory tells the dramatic story of the years 1941-1945 when U.S. railroads, using fewer cars and locomotives than in WWI, moved more tonnage and more passengers than ever before. Divided into 13 chapters, plus a 32-page four-color section, an introduction, bibliography and a complete index, the volume appeals to railfans, historians, military historians, and many others. The 380-page hardbound book features 542 photographs, an additional 285 illustrations, a four-color laminated dustjacket and a complete listing of U.S. military camps, posts and bases as of August 1, 1941. The book discusses the implications of the war on the railroads, embarkation of troops and materiels, how the Military Railway Service joined the fight and what was happening on U.S railroads during the war. It also addresses new railroad cars and locomotives built for the war, military camp railroads, how Alaska’s railroads played a part in the conflict, how women helped the war effort, and what was happening in foreign theaters. It describes how railroads aided in the return of wounded troops and equipment, and the atmosphere on the railroads immediately after the war. Scale drawings of war-emergency box cars are also included, as are troop train car plans. Trains to Victory covers such topics as the huge Chicago & NorthWestern Proviso Yards during wartime, personal glimpses of the war from a number of railroaders and intriguing aspects of the war from the Army Engineers, Association of American Railroads and the War Department. Wartime products of locomotive and railroad car manufacturers such as Baldwin, Alco, Davenport, Lima, Whitcomb, Budd, Electro-Motive, H.K. Porter, Pullman, American Car & Foundry and the St. Louis Car Company are documented throughout the volume. Hardbound, 8 ½ x11", 380 pages, 825 photos and illustrations, 32-page all-color photo section, 13 chapters, extensive historical military/railroad documentation.

Travel by Train; The American Railroad Poster, 1870-1950
By Michael E. Zega and John E. Gruber
Between 1870 and 1950, America’s railroads produced a body of poster work significant both for the artists involved and for the range of images created. The railroads used this visual medium from their founding, first in the form of broadsides, dominated by text and intended to convey practical information, and then, during the 1890s, as vivid lithographed display posters. For the next 50 years, American railroads commissioned posters designed to spur the popular imagination and thereby encourage travel. Images of compelling intensity included Maurice Logan’s icons of the 1920s overland limiteds passing in the West; Adolph Treidler’s wonder cities; Santa Fe’s Native Americans; and Leslie Ragan’s and Sascha Maurer’s machine-age steamliners. Although a great deal has been written about European railway and travel posters, their American counterparts remained in the shadows. Travel by Train focuses on the artists, railroad men, and advertising agencies that created and produced the work. It presents the posters in the context of the historical trends and competitive strategies that shaped the development of the railroad industry. The book also follows the development of the advertising business and graphic design in the U.S. and Europe. It features approximately 160 poster images (many in color), personal photographs, and sketches, many of them never before published. 156 pages, 55 B&W Photos, 110 Color Photos, Hardcover

Twelve Twenty Five; The Life and Times of A Steam Locomotive
By Kevin P. Keefe
The against-all-odds story of a World War II–era steam locomotive and the determination of two generations of volunteers to keep it running comes alive in Twelve Twenty-Five: The Life and Times of a Steam Locomotive. Pere Marquette 1225 was built in 1941 at the peak of steam locomotive development. The narrative traces the 1225’s regular freight service in Michigan, its unlikely salvation from the scrapyard for preservation at Michigan State University, and the subsequent work to bring it back to steam, first by a student club and later by a railroad museum. Milestones along the way include 1225’s retirement in 1951, its donation to MSU in 1957, its return to steam in 1988, a successful career hauling tens of thousands of excursion riders, and its starring role in the 2004 movie The Polar Express. The massive infrastructure that supported American steam locomotives in their heyday disappeared long ago, forcing 1225’s faithful to make their own spare parts, learn ancient railroad skills, and interpret the entire effort for the public. As such, the continuing career of 1225 is a triumph of historic preservation. 248 pages, 143 B&W Photos, Hardcover.
