Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"

The big volume (10x12 inches, 192 pages) is a black-and-white photographer's dream. Solomon introduces each chapter (arranged geographically) with recollections of the photographers themselves. Captions for each image are clear and precise, with a full index of photo thumbnails and more details on how, when and why the exposure was made.

Those of us who were chasing the last of steam at the time can certainly relate to what Solomon has assembled. Others less fortunate can relate nearly as well, thanks to the superb photographic reproduction and thoughtful text. No serious student of the industry can afford to be without it." - Railroad Week In Review
