Steam Trains
A Modern View of Yesterday's Railroads

By James P. Bell  


Steam Trains

Few images speak as clearly of a time and a place as a dramatic black-and-white photograph of an American steam locomotive powering through that storied era of railroad history. All the new photographs in this beautiful book meticulously recreate that original style, capturing the bygone age of steam railroads against the settings of its heyday, including period architecture and other details. The result is the crisp, stunning quality of contemporary photography—reproduced in highest-quality duotone prints—of the iconic locomotives of yesteryear. Featured trains include the Milwaukee Road; the Cumbres and Toltec snowplow runs; the Cotton Belt 819 in Arkansas, Missouri, and Illinois; the Savannah and Atlanta No. 750; the Frisco 1522 in Missouri; the Norfolk and Western 611 and 1218 in Georgia and Tennessee; and the Union Pacific 3985 in Wyoming, Nebraska and Arkansas. 10 x 10”, 192 pages, hardbound, 120 b/w photos.
