Editorial Reviews

Review

"A monumental work -- truly a work of love... The historian, the researcher, the admirer of railway lore, the builder of model train sets, the restorer of a classic railway vehicle... will now spend the rest of their lives poring over Mr. White's words and his nearly 800 photographs and schematic cutaway drawings." -- New York Times



"First-class." -- Model Railway Constructor



"Well worth the price of the ticket." -- Baltimore Sun



"The Super Chief of railroad books." -- Chicago Sun-Times



"[A] beautifully produced volume... The real treat, however, is in White's informative and often entertaining narrative analysis of technological change." -- Journal of American History

About the Author

John H. White, Jr., formerly Curator of Transportation at the Smithsonian Institution, has written eight books and more than one hundred articles on American railroad technology.

This has to be the ultimate publication on passenger cars. Everything you want to know and more. Information overload at its best! THE books for the person interesting in railroading in any age.

I have done passenger car restoration for several years and this book is a must. The book has tons of detail and answers so many questions about design, material, and then backs it up with great research.
