Classic American Railroads Volume III. By: Mike Schafer.
This book celebrates 12 more of the greatest American railways to ever put steel to track: the Atlantic Coast Line, Norfolk & Western, Soo Line, Lackawanna, Monon, Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range, Frisco, Maine Central, Canadian National, Clinchfield, Reading, and the Spokane, Portland & Seattle. While the book focuses on the golden age of American railroading from 1945 to the early 1970s, it extends to the present day where applicable, providing a colorful look at locomotives, passenger and freight operations, development, and, in some cases, demise. Marvelous color spreads for each railroad are illustrated with wonderfully preserved photos that capture these legendary roads as they roll past scenic backdrops.
