DUST JACKET INTRODUCTION:
The Great Northern Railway was built from an accumulation of smaller railroads, and eventually grew west from Minnesota, over the plains of the Dakotas, and across the mountain ranges of the West to reach the Pacific shore.
Lines East is the story of the eastern divisions of the Great Northern, and presents detailed and dramatic accounts of operations over these lines, particularly dealing with the last forty years before the merger into Burlington Northern.
A wide variety of traffic was carried on Lines East, an intense passenger service of both local and long-distance trains, and also considerable freight. Part of the story of this traffic lies in the modernization of the railroad, first with heavy steam locomotives and then with diesels. The additional part is the passenger and freight rolling stock required to do this work.
Well-known railroad author Patrick C. Dorin vividly describes Lines East territory, assisted by experts Richard Hendrickson and Staffan Ehnbom in a new and authoritative freight car chapter. This new edition is substantially improved and enlarged from the first edition of 1989.
With its companion volume, Lines West by Charles R. Wood, Lines East presents a detailed account of a vital part of one of America's most fascinating roads, the Great Northern Railway.
