About this title


Pictorial history of the Nickel Plate, covering both the steam and diesel years. The author provides insight into the NP's cutting edge use of road switchers, the coal-fired gas turbine project, and first and second generation dieselization. The author also provides a balanced look at the the locomotive roster, pointing out that there were more than just 700s on the road. Almost all the shots are action shots out on the line so there are plenty of trackside structures and scenery to inspire the modeler. With rosters for 1893, 1900, 1916, 1926, 1935, 1945, 1950, 1955, 1959, and 1964. With maps and schematic diagrams. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and an 8 page color section. 144 pages.
