The story of America's railways is as varied and filled with romance as the locomotives themselves that rush past in a kaleidoscope of colors. Quaint and charming pleasure trains proliferate, such as the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, which crawls up squealing flanges along a narrow ledge 400 feet above a river, in the Canyon of Lost Souls. From the beautiful and comfortable red and stainless steel Canadian Pacific streamliner to Southern's famous Chattanooga Choo-Choo, America's railroads have survived and prospered against the odds in an era of air travel. Innovative technology, such as cars with body-tilting mechanisms on Canada's Light-Rapid-Comfortable, combines comfort with speed as trains are able to negotiate curves faster. Consolidation of railroad companies have made them more efficient. Freight trains  criss-cross the countryside, carrying more than 850 billion ton-miles per year, bringing to mind old President Williamson of the New York Central, saying, 'Look at those high cars roll: finest sight in all the world.'
Superb illustrations help to depict the story of the world's most important railway systems. Photographs of diesel locomotives, pleasure trains, name trains, turbines and the latest metroliners appear in this volume. American Railroads is a collector's item for all lovers of the romance of the railroad.
