Working on the Railroad
By Brian Solomon
This richly illustrated volume takes us behind the scenes to show what goes into keeping a railroad running in our era of computer-aided 6,000-horsepower diesel locomotion. Author and photographer Brian Solomon explains who does what and how, from dispatching and signaling to maintaining locomotives and driving trains. Everything it takes to keep a railroad running smoothly and safely—the daily decisions, the procedures that must be followed, the lowdown on track maintenance—comes clearly into view as Solomon gives readers both a seat in the locomotive and the dispatcher’s view. Into this larger account he weaves anecdotes from railroad workers as well as the historical evolution of railway vocations, with descriptions of how each job has changed over time as well as marvelous archival imagery that illustrates these developments. 160 pages
