Summary

The development of the railway in America reached its historic apex with the completion of "The Great Transcontinental" in 1869, two years before the appearance of American Locomotive Engineering. Significantly, the book was published at a time midway in the histories of many of the great locomotive builders whose products are illustrated. The half-way points of Hinckley, Taunton, Danforth-Cooke and Grant all fall within five years of 1871.

American Locomotive Engineering was originally published in book form in 1871 and was "serialized" in magazines during the years prior to its formal publication.

This reprint is a faithful photographic reproduction of all the fine drawings and magnificent engravings found in the original.
