About this Item

38 pgs. Undated, but circa 1947 based on other titles bought from the same retired railroad employee's collection of technical manuals. Plus, someone has fastened a page from the 1947 Schenectady, NY phone book showing a town map to the rear posts of the book. Not only was this a ONE-OF-A-KIND title, but after an extensive internet search, this was the only publication listed for sale online from this Locomotive School of any kind! SC book has bold, red leatherette wraps over a three post binding, bright silver font on fc. Book is in VERY GOOD + Shape. Actually Fine, but for the one or two areas noted. Covers are quite bright and shiny, totally unmarked and undamaged but for pressure marks on post, very lightly bumped corners, and a 1/4" tear at the top front edge. Page edges are starting to yellow Otherwise, book is totally unmarked inside and out, unfoxed with no musty odors. No DJ. A neat and highly unusual piece of railroad engine training school history, replete with pages of technical details. The last page of the book is a blueprint type diagram showing the Schenectady Works of the American Locomotive Company, building yard layout. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
