Classic Trains : Oversized Volume 350 x 275mm
Featuring more than 30 beautiful, historic trains and locomotives, this exquisite volume--big and horizontal, all the better to capture the length and breadth of the cars and tracks--paints an intimate portrait of North American railroad history. Firsthand accounts of life on the rails, more than 150 dramatic photographs, and a close look at how trains transformed the continent's landscape, society, and history make this a thrill for any railroad aficionado. The story begins with the dawn of the steam era and goes through the golden age of railroad travel and on to the current day. The classics on these lavishly illustrated pages include the tiny, treasured Best Friend of Charleston, the celebrated Twentieth Century Limited Streamliner, and high-speed models that cross the country today.
