About this Item

Unusual and fascinating look at the elite group of railway maintenance workers and the highly specialized machinery they employ to keep the tracks clear and safe. From defect-detection cars, to tie cranes, spike pullers, doodlebugs, rail grinders, rotary plows and more -- this behind-the-scenes look at the railways is great stuff for railroad buffs or for the just plain curious. TONS of photographs. One big bump in back, runs through the last sixty pages, but doesn't at all interfere with enjoyment or aesthetics of the book. Oversize paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 60994

You may have seen some of these machines and tools as you roll alongside a rail bed. But what to call them, or knowing how they work, may allude you. Find the true identity of the different tools used to build and maintain railbeds and lines including tie pullers, rail grinders, and much, much more. Detailed photos show the machines and tools in action. This is a handy reference guide for fans of full-size railways or modelers.
