About this title


This is the first comprehensive, extensively illustrated account of the growth and decline of American narrow gauge railroading, a singular and still not fully understood episode in the history of American transportation.

From the Back Cover:

Only a handful of books in the field of railroad history have become the standard reference work in a particular area. . . . To those select volumes should be added American Narrow Gauge Railroads. . . . This is an excellent work, and the author and publisher both deserve accolades.” Railroad History

Every so often, a book is published that deserves to be called a landmark. . . . American Narrow Gauge Railroads is probably the first of such caliber for the 90s.” Railfan and Railroad
