HENRY B. COMSTOCK
The majesty of the steam locomotive unfolds in this superbly illustrated history of the machines that helped transform America. Artist and railroad enthusiast Henry B. Comstock's detailed pencil renderings cover two hundred years of steam development, which included the diminutive Tom THUMB locomotive of 1830 and the giant "Big Boys" of the 1940s.
Here is the complete story of steam power on American railroads, told in a way that is sure to delight railfans, history buffs, and anyone who appreciates fine illustration.
