Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For as long as locomotives have been the stars of North American railroads, rolling stock has trundled and raced along behind, carrying raw materials, finished goods, and people. Illustrated with more than 250 photographs, Railroad Rolling Stock traces the evolution of various forms of rolling stock from throughout the history of North American railroading. Each chapter features a specific type: from boxcars, gondolas, and hoppers to tankcars, flatcars, and auto racks, intermodal rolling stock, passenger equipment, the venerable caboose, and even maintenance-of-way (MOW) equipment. Throughout, the photographs reflect the grand geographic and technological breadth of North American railroading and are accompanied by detailed captions identifying the rolling stock pictured and explaining their roles in the history of North American railroading from the “Golden Age” to present.

Book News Annotation:

Barry, a veteran railroad photographer and journalist, focuses this gallery of over 200 color photographs on rolling stock, showing how these boxcars, flatcars, hoppers, gondolas, autoracks and cabooses are an important part of North American railroad history. Written for railroad enthusiasts, this book also describes the history, development and historical applications of each rolling stock category. The author has ensured that every geographical region of the United States and Canada is represented in these images as well. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
