Seaboard Air Line Railroad Passenger Service - The Streamlined Era is a complete history of the Seaboard's passenger 'rains from the state 1930s, when streamlining first entered the picture, through the SCL and Amtrak eras. This detailed and highly understandable book covers all Seaboard trains, from the flashiest streamliners to plodding locals, together with the varied and distinctive SAL passenger car roster. Author Larry Goolsby has done a masterful job of research, compilation, analysis, and distillation to tell the full story of SAL passenger trains in their last great decades. This comprehensive volume will be a valuable reference for the Seaborad or passenger train fan, and a readable story of how this railroad accommodated and catered to the heavy passenger traffic on its north-south route. Illustrations from numerous sources complement the literate text.
