Steam Trains A modern view of yesterdays railroads by James P Bell with dust jacket 2006192 pages  10 X 10 inches 120 black & white photos.  
For more than a century, steam-powered railroads were crucial threads in our nation's fabric. Now, in this remarkable collection spanning 25 years, author and photographer James P. Bell presents dozens of his superb fine art black-and-white photographs capturing steam-age survivors as they ply modern rails in every region of the United States and in Canada.
The steam age saw our nation through unprecedented expansion, Civil War, two World Wars, and phenomenal technological advances. Today, that's all history. But luckily, scores of railfans have dedicated themselves to the cause of preserving the awesome steam locomotives and their rolling stock for current and future generations to admire and enjoy.
With these 23 profiles, Bell explores and illustrates steam railroads in the diesel age and reveals the unique characteristics of the locomotives and the stories of the organizations that operate them, as readers witness modern-day steam engineers coax every ounce of available power from their massive boilers amid the squeaking and shuddering of their antique frames.
The huffing of coal exhaust and the clanking of connecting rods once supplied the rhythm of a growing nation. That dynamic sense of power and optimism is relived in these pages, populated with Bell's superb photography and serving as a fitting tribute not just to the machines, but to the people who have selflessly worked to preserve these living slices of American history.
