Steam Passenger Service Directory Including Electric Lines & Museums 1976
 
Steam Passenger Service Directory Including Electric Lines & Museums 1976 An illustrated directory listing tourist railroad, trolley and museum operations with regularly scheduled or intermittent passenger service.  152 pages.  
For the U.S.A. 1976 is, of course, the Bicentennial Year. This Eleventh Edition of the STEAM PASSENGER DIRECTORY features one of railroading's contributions to the Bicentennial, The American Freedom Train. The Freedom Train will spend the rest of the year completing its epic journey through 48 states, powered by three historic steam locomotives, two of which are shown on our covers this year.
In editing the Directory this year we are encouraged to note the increasing involvement in steam railroading made by local, county, state and provincial governments. The Government of British Columbia especially deserves to be recognized, with two active steam trains in operation. The State of Vermont will be operating a steam passenger train this year in a truly unique fashion. Readers may also note that county and local officials are sponsoring steam trains in diverse areas of the country. We are sure they will find that the lure of the steam whistle, the sight and sound of the steam locomotive will indeed attract local citizens and tourists alike to the ticket window.
The 1976 Steam Directory welcomes twelve new listings this year, although this figure includes several which were absent for only one or two editions. A number of railroads have been omitted from this Edition but hopefully they will return to the Directory in subsequent issues.
We would caution our readers that the Bicentennial Year should produce a great increase in tourism. You are urged to call ahead for reservations to avoid disappointment. In the case of all-day train trips, failure to have a reservation may well mean failure to ride the train that day.
As always, letters from readers are welcomed and most are promptly answered. The Editors are aware of a number of steam train operations not listed in this Directory. Many of these are amusement park trains, others are not included simply because accurate information could not be obtained by our publication date.
