Titel: NEW HAVEN POWER 1838-1968: STEAM, DIESEL, ...
Verlag: Alvin F. Staufer, Publisher, Medina, OH
Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Dust Jacket Included
Auflage: Third printing.
The New Haven had perhaps the most diverse equipment fleet in the US. Trolleys, boats, buses, and trucks were products of geography and of management's philosophy of being a total transportation company. To counteract the phenomenal successes of pioneer electrification and early dieselization, there were mistakes inspired by illogical motive power policies in the hands of a few greedy or misguided but all-powerful men. 592 pages with photographs, diagrams, maps and rosters, plus 14 reproduced color paintings in the rear. Fine in a near fine, bright dust jacket with just a hint of fading to the yellow lettering on the spine. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 39726
Inhaltsangabe: Massive compilation of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad's equipment. The book stretches from the tottering teapot steam locomotives of its predecessors all the way forward to the diesel electrics. In between is a parade of steam locomotives, electrics, multiple units, diesel-hydraulics, gas-electrics, railbuses, freight cars, cabooses, tugboats, steamboats, highway buses and trucks, steamcars, lightweight trains and RDCs. There is an equal variety of passenger equipment with everything from the polished heavyweight Parlor to electric interurbans. With 50 "class charts" detailing every locomotive type plus rosters of steam, diesel and electric motive locomotives. Illustrated throughout with over 1300 black and white photos as well as a 16 page color section. 608 pages with a comprehensive index.
