The real glory of this handsomely designed book is its rich illustration. Joe Welsh, Bill Howes , and Kevin J. Holland are top-notch photo researchers and archivists, which they prove here with a great selection of 19th century glass-late photos, heavy-weight-era publicity photos, Pullman promotions and car diagrams, and some impressive postwar color action. The authors also have the good sense to go beyond train and car photos. Using photographer Jim Scribbins’ candid interior view of the Seaboard Air Line’s peerless Sun Lounge across a full spread is brilliant photo editing and typical of the entire book. Anyone interested in passenger railroading – including modelers – will love this book. Trains - November 2010
