Railroad Stations is the most comprehensive single published source of images of American railroad stations and is a necessary addition to the library of anyone interested in railroad architecture and the combination of railroad history, architecture, and engineering. I look forward to future additions to this important and unusual series, for which W. W. Norton should be commended. (APT Bulletin: Journal of Preservation Technology)
[I]ndispensable for architecture and transportation collections and a useful reference for others... Highly recommended. (CHOICE)
Railroad Stations is more than just a comprehensive, beautifully-produced, and geographically diverse large format book; its ultimate value is its smooth integration with an online image gallery that offers readers easy access the more than 600 plans, drawings, maps, and images of railroad stations large and small around the United States. (O-Scale Trains Magazine)
This exhaustive study of American railroad architecture gathers together a great number of archival images, giving the reader a thorough idea as to how the architecture has grown and developed throughout the years. (Amateur Photographer (UK))
[A]n extremely comprehensive review....[S]hows far more than mere architectural details.... [A] valuable record of a unique subject. (Heritage Railway)
David Naylor, is an architectural historian, photographer, and a regular rider on the rails. Along with train trips all around North America, he has crossed Australia on the Indian Pacific, and traveled far north into Finland from his favorite station, the Helsinki Central Railway Station. His previous books include American Picture Palaces: The Architecture of Fantasy and Great American Movie Theaters.
My husband really enjoyed this book. He is very interested in all things railroad. He likes reading about and seeing pictures about the older railroad stations.Published 6 months ago by Donna Dow

Bad book! Lack of real research. Just done for people with little knowledge of the subject. A very disappointing publication.Published on February 28, 2013 by CAP
This book was a gift to a railroad enthusiast and will be cherished for years to come. The illustrations are beautiful and the narrative is very interesting. Read morePublished on January 17, 2012 by HSL1
