This authoritative history of the American railroad passenger car examines interior designs and costs. It recaptures the lost, but not-too-distant past when 98 percent of all intercity travel in the United States was by rail. It documents in extraordinary detail the ingenuity and splendour of the classic trains as well as the rattle and clatter, the dust and cinders of early rail travel. White traces the evolution of wheels and brakes, dining cars and sleeping compartments. And he follows the revolutions in taste and technology that dramatically altered the appearance of the railroad car over the century and a half that it dominated American travel. Good Condition. A little scattered foxing to the page edges, but very good condition inside. 2 part unabridged softback edition. Johns Hopkins University Press 1985. 387 photographs and 385 line drawings, 690pp. NOS-ARP-C12
