  • American Passenger Trains and Locomotives Illustrated (Wegman)

From the 1890's to the mid 1950's is generally reckoned to be the 'Golden Age' of passenger rail travel in America - cheap, quick, and with unparalleled luxury. It was a time of celebrated locomotives and luxurious passenger service, a time when rail technology saw great advances and the railroad became the countries favorite mode of transport. In this volume, the Glory Years come alive again, as author Mark Wegman details original railroad drawings of more than 160 profiles, front, top views, interior layouts of the steam, diesel, and electric locomotives, along with the passenger cars of 36 of the most celebrated trains of this era. Accompanying these detailed illustrations are histories of each train, period photographs, postcards, menus, luggage stickers, vintage print advertisements, detailed captions, all adding up to a lavish journey back in time to the bygone heyday of passenger-train travel. 2008 Voyager Press. Hardcover with dw. VG, wear to board edges. 160pp. 2I-WY7R-RN73
