Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive photographic history is arranged by eight geographical regions to present the grand saga of railroading in the United States and Canada — from the earliest days of steam locomotives, through the dawn of the diesel era and modern freight and passenger trains. Railroads Across America begins with a brief examination of the railways that operated in the eastern United States prior to the completion of transcontinental tracks. Author Mike Del Vecchio then goes on to explain and illustrate how regional railroads were built and operated, and the companies, trains, and people that were associated with each region's railroad industry. The result is a handsome edition featuring photography from the nation's finest collections and some of the subject's greatest photographers, past and present. Modern photography depicts the timeless imagery of perfectly preserved equipment, much of it still in operative condition. At just $24.95, this sprawling and exquisitely illustrated history is a truly remarkable value. Author Mike Del Vecchio is the former editor of "Railfan & Railroad" magazine. His acclaimed photography and journalism on the subject of railroads and railways have been published around the globe.
