Inhaltsangabe: This book picks up where the previous two Classic American titles left off, celebrating 12 more of the greatest American railways to ever put steel to track: the Atlantic Coast Line, Norfolk & Western, Soo Line, Lackawanna, Monon, Duluth, Missabe & Iron Range, Frisco, Maine Central, Canadian National, Clinchfield, Reading, and the Spokane, Portland & Seattle. While the book focuses on the golden age of American railroading from 1945 to the early 1970s, it extends to the present day where applicable, providing a colorful look at locomotives, passenger and freight operations, development, and, in some cases, demise. Marvelous color spreads for each railroad are illustrated with wonderfully preserved photos that capture these legendary roads as they roll past scenic backdrops.
About the Author: Mike Schafer hails from Rockford, Illinois, where he recalls his earliest train-watching experiences on the Illinois Central, Milwaukee Road, Burlington Route, and Chicago & North Western. He vividly can recall his first train rides, circa 1952, on IC\u2019s Hawkeye and Land O\u2019 Corn between Rockford and Chicago. Eventually he would declare the latter — America\u2019s railroad hub — his \u201chonorary hometown. Mike and his little dog Archie reside in a house (which includes a 1,600-square-foot model railroad) next to BNSF\u2019s busy Twin Cities mainline in a small town outside Chicago where he also serves as village trustee and occasionally mayor pro tem.
