About this Item

0974306029 Dust jacket condition: Like New. 11x8.5 horisontal format, cloth with dust jacket. "Cloth with dust jacket, 8.5 x 11 landscape format, 120 glossy pages, 250+ color and b/w photos. "In its last decades of operation during the 1960s and 70s, the Lehigh Valley Railroad had a dedicated following of fans. These enthusiasts were attracted by the railroad's underdog status among northeastern railroads and its fascinating variety of locomotives with their kaleidoscopic variety of paint schemes. "One such fan was Ken Kraemer from the Buffalo, New York, area. Ken spent much time documenting the LV's operations with his camera from the mid-1950s to the railroad's demise in April of 1976. "With emphasis on the often overlooked west end of the route, this book contains over 250 of Ken's photos in both color and black and white. Take a look at the era of LV's diesels known as "White Elephants" and "Yellow Jackets" in such locations as Depew, P&L Junction, Rochester Junction, and Sayre. The last few days of operation in the Buffalo area are uniquely covered, and there are follow-up sections on former LV locomotives operated under Conrail and Delaware & Hudson. More photos trace the Lehigh Valley that survives to the present day. "With an accent on the aesthetic side of the railroad's operations, Ken's photos personally capture the essence of the Lehigh Valley Railroad. His book will take you back to one of the most interesting times in northeastern railroading." 120 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 057980

Terms of Sale:

We guarantee the condition of every book as it's described on the Abebooks web sites. If you're dissatisfied with your purchase (Incorrect Book/Not as Described/Damaged) or if the order hasn't arrived, you're eligible for a refund within 30 days of the estimated delivery date. If you've changed your mind about a book that you've ordered, please use the "Ask bookseller a question" link to contact us.


Shipping Terms:

We generally ship by the next business day. We want your order to reach you in the same condition it leaves our shelves -- so much so that we've created our own brand of shipping mailer. CorgiPack┐ mailers are constructed with a B-flute corrugated fiberboard pad providing solid edge and corner protection in transit, protection sadly lacking in cheap bubble mailers. And they're 100% recyclable -- just put them out with the household paper! International orders are shipped via AIR and should arrive in 7 to 10 days after shipping. Oversize items (e.g. sets containing 2 or more volumes, 4to, folios) and high cost items are sometimes subject to additional shipping charges; we will contact you for your approval if such is the case. Orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. International shipments may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and can't predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
