About this title

Synopsis:

A general overview of steam and diesel locomotive terminal facilities on American railroads,. It shows roundhouses, coaling, sanding, and water stations, ready tracks, washers, cinder plants, and other facilities needed to service steam locomotives, many of which were later converted for diesel use. The  second in a series of small books following Steam Locomotive Coaling Stations and Diesel Locomotive Fueling Facilities, published in 2002. This book concentrates on the locomotive terminal that was found in most railroad yards and at division points. It is not exhaustive in treatments by any means; at best it is a representative sampling, because the variety of these facilities is huge.

Store Description

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
