City Trains: Moving Through America's Cities by Rail

City Trains: Moving Through America's Cities by Rail

by Roger Yepsen

Editorial Reviews

Stephanie Zvirin
The author of "Humanpower" expands his view of locomotion to introduce readers to U.S. urban mass transit, starting where it began--with horsecar railways. In anecdote-filled chapters, he follows along as horse-powered people movers give way to cable cars, electric railroads, subway and elevated trains, interurbans, and commuter railways, ending with a peek at what "city trains" may be like in years to come. Yepsen's colorful writing style, alive with clever comparisons, not only helps the many facts go down easily, but also makes reading about what might be considered a routine subject fascinating and fun. To be illustrated with photographs.
