Steam Locomotive: A Century of North American Classics
Jim Boyd (au). For more than 100 years, steam locomotives were the biggest & fastest land machines to travel across America. After they were technologically displaced by the diesel-electric locomotive in the 1950s, significant examples were restored for historical societies, museums, & tourist railroads. This volume tells the story of America’s mainline steam locomotives & illustrates that story with vintage B&W action views of the engines in regular revenue service before retirement & color photographs of the restored locomotives. Each locomotive is set in proper historical perspective, & its place on the “developmental ladder” is summarized in easily understandable terms. Also includes a capsule history of each locomotive’s restoration & operation.
