The Last Steam Railroad in America

by

The Last Steam Railroad in America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

O. Winston Link began photographing the Norfolk and Western, the last major steam railroad in America, in the mid-1950s, when the N&W was converting its operations from steam to diesel. He was pursuing a decade-old vision of photographing steam railroading at night using synchronized flash. This book, companion to his earlier best-selling Steam, Steel & Stars, also includes daytime photographs and two dozen dramatic color shots.

Synopsis:

From 1955 to 1959, O. Winston Link travelled up and down the Norfolk and Western railroad, taking pictures of the trains, the towns and the people who lived and worked there. This book contains day and night photographs, with a text on the railroad's activities, Link's achievement and his life.
