Railroad Rolling Stock

By Steve Barry

 

 

Railroad Rolling Stock

For as long as locomotives have been the stars of North American railroads, rolling stock has trundled and raced along behind, carrying raw materials, finished goods and people. Illustrated with more than 250 color photographs, Railroad Rolling Stock traces the evolution of various forms of rolling stock from throughout the history of North American railroading. Each chapter features a specific type from box cars, gondolas and hoppers to tank cars, flat cars and auto racks, intermodal rolling stock, passenger equipment, the venerable caboose and even maintenance-of-way (MOW) equipment. Throughout, the photographs reflect the grand geographic and technological breadth of North American railroading and are accompanied by detailed captions identifying the rolling stock pictured and explaining their roles in the history of North American railroading from the Golden Age to present. Softbound, 192 pages, 6 1/2 x 8 1/4".
