Ride the rails through the development and history of America's diesel-electric locomotives. Diesel-electric played a critical role in the industrialization of America. After WWII, diesels rapidly displaced the steam locomotive as the dominant source of motive power on the rails. This lavishly illustrated volume delivers detailed coverage of the development of the diesel including AC traction and the 800-horsepower beasts introduced in the mid 1990s. Solomon describes how diesels are operated and maintained today. Appendix lists where restored early diesels can be seen.  2000 MBI. Hardcover with dw. VG. 168pp.  XIM-W5O-MA2
