Super Steam Locomotives (Enthusiast Color)

Super Steam Locomotives (Enthusiast Color) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More steam equals more power. In 1924, Lima Locomotives Works introduced the Berkshire, an engine that boasted superlative speed and power via the relatively simple principle of a greatly enlarged firebox. The Bershire inspired a new breed of super steam locomotives designed by numerous manufacturers and used by virtually every American railroad until the end of the steam era. This color history uses modern color photgraphs of examples still used today by museums and tourists railways- models like the Hudson, Northern, Challenger, Yellowstone, and Big Boy.

Synopsis:

The Northern, Yellowstone, Challenger, Big Boy, and Class J were part of a new breed of super steam locomotives in the late 1920s. This colorful history uses archival imagery of pioneering engines, along with modern color photography of examples still used today by museums and tourist railways. 100 photos, 80 in color.
