"Quickly and concisely Dr. Daniels leads you through the maze of building, merging, and a myriad of other details necessary to understand modern railroading." - Donald D. Snoddy, Historian, Union Pacific Railroad

About the Author

Richard E. Prince was born in 1920 and was raised in Norfolk, Virginia. He attended Georgia School of Technology in Atlanta, graduating in 1942 with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. After working a year in the L&N Railroad South Louisville Shops as a special apprentice, he joined the Merchant Marines. He obtained his 3rd
Assistant Engineer License and sailed during the war as 3rd engineer on steam Liberty ships. Prince returned to the L&N Railroad at South Louisville Shops where he became Assistant to the General Foreman in the steam back shop and roundhouse. In 1952 Prince joined the Mechanical Engineering Department of the Union Pacific Railroad and was sent to Green River, Wyoming, where he was part of the Gas Turbine Locomotive Staff for 15 years. In 1969 he transferred to the Omaha Mechanical Engineering Department of the UPRR. Prince retired in 1983, and lives in Omaha, Nebraska. His ten books on railroads have sold over 20,000 copies.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Henry M. Dobb on April 6, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This is another book by the prolific railroad author Richard E. Prince who is well-known throughout the American railfan community for his books on the steam locomotives of several Southeastern railroads. These books, mostly long out of print and of limited initial press runs, are highly prized by collectors. Most of these volumes are now being reissued by Indiana University Press so that these books may gain a wider circulation and offer those who were unable to purchase a copy of the limited initial releases. I, for one, am grateful to Indiana University Press for re-releasing this book, as well as others on steam motive power of the Atlantic Coast Line and the Seaboard Air line rairoads (both if which I have previously reviewed ...)A volume on the steam power of the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Railroad is forthcoming.
The typical comprehensiveness of a Prince work is in this volume down to which six class J-4 2-8-2 Mikado steam locomotves got larger tenders in later years, not to mention the physical dimensions such as driving wheel diameter, cylinder bore and stroke, boiler pressure and tractive effort of each class of engine and date of disposition of each individual locomotive. If there is anything you would want to know about Louisville and Nashville Railroad steam power, it is in the book. It is my opinion that photographic clarity and quality is better than the usual Prince volume and does not suffer by comparison with other works of this genre.
This is a good book and a copy of it belongs in the library of any American steam locomotive enthusiast.
