From the Back Cover:

Extending the principles of the famed Peterson Identification System to the man-made world, A Field Guide to Trains will enable you to identify virtually any locomotive running on a North American railroad. The only book of its kind, this field guide includes a chapter on how to identify locomotives as well as detailed descriptions and illustrations of locomotives and cars - from road switchers and electrics to passenger and freight cars. A Field Guide to Trains features more than 170 locomotives and cars - every locomotive you are likely to see on national, regional, and short-line railroads in North America; clear illustrations, using the Peterson Identification System to pinpoint the key field marks that distinguish one locomotive from another; locomotives grouped by visual similarity for ease of identification; and detailed description of each locomotive, including statistical data, manufacturing history, usage by railroads, and comparisons to similar locomotives.
