Historical archaeologist and former Amador County archivist Deborah Coleen Cook presents here a unique group of images from the railroad and county archival materials, taking the reader on a journey through the history of the line. Cook serves as a board member on the nonprofit management committee that recently acquired the Amador
Central Railroad. The Images of Rail series celebrates the history of rail, trolley, streetcar, and subway transportation across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the people, places, and events that helped revolutionize transportation and commerce in 19th- and 20th-century America. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
