No single researcher, undertaking to investigate fifty years of locomotive ownership by a railroad as large as the Rock Island, can possibly do full justice to the subject by his own efforts alone, no matter how well-intentioned. I am acutely aware that however far into this subject I may have seen, I have been able to do so only by virtue of the work of countless railroad historians who have gone before us, and by the unselfish cooperation of the present members of that fraternity. Without their labors, that one aspect of this Company's long history with which I am here concerned might never have received its due measure of attention -especially since there is now no corporate survivor to aid in any future work. It is to those devotees of Rock Island lore that this book really owes its existence.
