John H. White, Jr., formerly Curator of Transportation at the Smithsonian Institution, has written eight books and more than one hundred articles on American railroad technology.Review:
"A monumental work -- truly a work of love... The historian, the researcher, the admirer of railway lore, the builder of model train sets, the restorer of a classic railway vehicle... will now spend the rest of their lives poring over Mr. White's words and his nearly 800 photographs and schematic cutaway drawings." -- New York Times
"First-class." -- Model Railway Constructor
"Well worth the price of the ticket." -- Baltimore Sun
"The Super Chief of railroad books." -- Chicago Sun-Times
"[A] beautifully produced volume... The real treat, however, is in White's informative and often entertaining narrative analysis of technological change." -- Journal of American History
