Overview

For as long as locomotives have been the stars of North American railroads, rolling stock has trundled and raced along behind, carrying raw materials, finished goods, and people. Illustrated with more than 250 photographs, Railroad Rolling Stock traces the evolution of various forms of rolling stock from throughout the history of North American railroading. Each chapter features a specific type: from boxcars, gondolas, and hoppers to tankcars, flatcars, and auto racks, intermodal rolling stock, passenger equipment, the venerable caboose, and even maintenance-of-way (MOW) equipment. Throughout, the photographs reflect the grand geographic and technological breadth of North American railroading and are accompanied by detailed captions identifying the rolling stock pictured and explaining their roles in the history of North American railroading from the “Golden Age” to present.

    Great pictures and text!

    I bought htis for my ten year old, who wanted to learn more about trains. The pictures are excellent and give a lot of information in themselves. The writing is interesting and he is enjoying all that he is learning. Of all the railroad books I looked at (and that was a lot), this was the best.
