For many railroad enthusiasts the golden years of American railroading were from the end of World War II to the late 1950s, when modern steam locomotives and brand-new, bright-colored diesels worked side by side, when carbuilders could barely meet the demand for glossy streamliners, when the rails were constantly busy. Wartime restrictions on photography were gone, and railfans flocked to trackside to photograph the action. Color film was still an pensive novelty, so the photos were black and white-and black and white photos were the bread and butter of Trains magazine.
Those black and white photos are still in the David P. Morgan Memorial Library of Kalmbach Publishing Co., and they're just as exciting as they were in the 1950s. The Golden Years of Railroading books are like a tour through these remarkable photo archives.
