Southern Railway Remembered by James Leslie Hepler 2001 Soft Cover 108 Pages
James L. Hepler's first hand autobiographical story of railroading on the Southern's Washington Division. He hired as a fireman in 1943, out of Alexandria, Virginia. Promoted to engineer, he actually worked many different jobs for the Southern through his retirement in 1970. His many firsthand accounts of how railroading really was on the Southern in the late steam and early diesel era, written in an intelligent, thoughtful and highly readable style, make this an unusual look at this railway's North-South mainline out of the Nation's capital. Included are many excellent steam and early diesel locomotive photos, mostly taken in the Washington D.C. area. This book is of interest to Southern fans and to anyone interested in railroading in the steam and early diesel era.
