Railways of the Modern Age Since 1963 By O S Nock Hard Cover w/ dust jacket (notice damage on the front of the dust jacket) First American Edition 1976 155 Pages Railways of the World in Color
Exploding the myth that railroads are a dying means of transportation, this new volume in the Railways of the World in Color Series demonstrates that the period since 1963 has been one of intense creative and expansive railway activity around the world.
The author-one of the greatest living authorities on railway history-combines a fact-filled text with eighty pages of full-color illustrations and precise data on specifications and performance to survey the world's railways today: high-speed lines that whisk passengers at speeds in excess of 150 m.p.h., cargo trains that are able to move immense tonnages of minerals by remote control, and restored locomotives that are becoming increasingly popular as tourist attractions. In addition to the 107 color illustrations of trains, this volume also offers full-color diagrams of routes, rail fastenings, crests, and symbols.
The romantic presence of steam locomotives may be almost gone, but this guide vividly conveys the excitement of today's trains-their speed, power, bold colors, and electronic sophistication.
0. S. Nock, renowned for his knowledge and writings on railway history and lore, is the author of six previous volumes in this informative and popular series. He is a British engineer and dedicated railway buff, who has traveled on tracks from North America to Africa and the Far East to gather the latest information on the world's railroads for this volume.
