In the field of transportation, the steam locomotive reigned supreme in the world of railway motive power, only to be replaced overnight by the diesel electric.
RAILS ACROSS THE MIDLANDS is a pictorial anthology of steam railroading in the grand manner. It embraces the Midlands - industrial heartland of America. Here could be found the greatest variety of railroads: heavy traffic main lines, connecting railroads, coal roads and shortlines.
The genius of the steam locomotive has been given the highball from cover to cover by more than 170 action-filled photographs covering the New York Central, Pennsylvania, Baltimore & Ohio, Nickel Plate, Chesapeake & Ohio, Wabash and many other lines. Also illustrated are the mighty electric powered coal trains which rolled over rails of the Norfolk & Western and the Virginian.
Adding nostalgic romance are illustrations of famous name passenger trains like Twentieth Century Limited, the Mercury, Detroit Arrow and the Golden Triangle. Not forgotten are the Shay geared locomotives which snaked logging trains through dense forested hills.
In this brilliant portfolio of photographic craftsmanship, Richard J. Cook presents a portrait of railroading during the post World War II period. The time when steam ruled the rails.
