• Amtrak: By the Numbers. A Comprehensive Passenger Car & Motive Power Roster 1971-2011 (Warner)

"White River Productions presents this comprehensive roster of Amtrak's passenger cars and motive power in service during the company's first 40 years, fully illustrated with a mixture of lineside scenes and roster views. Roster information is presented in a spreadsheet format with introductory text, grouped by major categories such as steam-heated cars, Heritage fleet, Amfleet, Superliners, diesel locomotives, and electric locomotives." A comprehensive roster of Amtrak motive power and passenger cars from May 1, 1971 through May 1, Electric Locomotive and is intended as a guide to 40 years of Amtrak cars and locomotives. More than that, it is a history of developments in passenger cars and locomotives over the past 65 years, as Amtrak molded the fleet that serves it today. This book presents a chronology of the developments. Amtrak's efforts to modernize its image, adapt to changing market conditions, and take advantage of new technology can be followed in the tables in this book. The tables are designed to enable readers to follow a particular piece of equipment -from cradle to grave- during its tenure on the railroad. Supplementing the numbers and dates in the tables is an impressive selection of over 440 color photographs highlighting the variety of equipment that Amtrak has operated. This book is excellent! What a great amount of work it was to complete.
