Rail Power

Rail Power



196 Pages



For nearly two centuries, through vast upheavals and enormous changes, railroads have remained the backbone of America's transportation system. And always setting the pace and pushing the railroad to the fore has been the mighty American locomotive in all its ever-changing, ever-evolving forms. This concise volume traces that transformation, chronicling the evolution of steam, electric, and diesel locomotives from the early 19th century right up to the present. Detailed descriptions identify the more than 100 locomotive types pictured and explain their roles in the history of American motive power. Taken together, these closely annotated photographs-over 250 in all-reflect the grand geographic and technological breadth of North American railroading over the last 200 years.
