Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Exceptional photography captures modern diesel locomotives hard at work moving trains on tracks everywhere from California to Boston. Major railroads are brought to life including the Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Conrail, Southern Pacific, and Burlington Northern. Modern Diesel Locomotives even gets under the skin of the locomotive and shows 12-foot-long diesel engines being rebuilt! Includes a short history of the rise of diesel technology.

Book News Annotation:

Great color photos. These are professional quality industrial publicity shots. The text is broad and shallow. Fun book.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Modern color photos capture today's diesel locomotives moving trains across the U.S.
