Railroading Along The Waterfront will take you on a photographic journey to key places where rails and water meet. You'll be treated to views of the compact terminal railroads in New York, where the only connection to the outside is by carfloat. You'll see a sampling of the reserved ports in the Canadian Maritimes and New England, as well as the bulk terminals of the Great Lakes and the modern container traffic of the West Coast. You'll also get a glimpse of the relaxed pace of railroading and commerce along the continent's rivers and lakes where railroads first ferried across and then bridged the waters.
This book will also give model railroad enthusiasts tips on how to add the fascination of waterfront railroading to a layout. The photo-paced modeling chapter includes sections on easy ways to make water, the basics of carfloat operation, and the workings of Great Lakes ore docks, not to mention photos of waterfront industries and track layouts for pier districts.
