Railroads have been part of the American way of life since 1828 when Americas first common-carrier railroad, the Baltimore Ohio, laid its first rail. Since then, hundreds and hundreds of railroad companies have been born. The Classic American Railroads gift set chronicles 44 of America and Canadas most loved railroads from the golden age. Most have disappeared or merged into the super railroads of today, but these fallen flags are fondly remembered. Here together in one boxed set are three railroad classics: Classic American Railroad, More Classic American Railroads, and Classic American Railroads, Volume III.

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.

Review:

Fort Collins Coloradoan, June 17, 2007

“Schafer has managed to both inform and delight even the most knowledgeable railroad buff.”
