This book is a wonderful series of tales from the last days of steam railroading in the US, based on four years of journeys by the authors. The varied locomotives are caught in over 430 beautiful black and white photos. The authors sought to capture a mechanical institution that was fast slipping away and they succeeded: the coaling towers, gleaming passenger trains, bustling roundhouses, overalled engineers, lopsided Shays and hulking Big Boys, all tied together with virtuoso prose that brings the era alive. 304 pages.
