    American Locomotives: An Engineering History, 1830-1880

    American Locomotives: An Engineering History, 1830-1880 Lowest new price: $97.06
    Lowest used price: $37.75
    List price: $62.00
    Author: Professor John H. White Jr.
    Brand: Brand: The Johns Hopkins University Press

    In 1835, there were 175 steam locomotives in service in the United States. By 1900, that number had increased to 37,663. In this newly revised and expanded edition of his classic work, renowned railroad historian John H. White, Jr., chronicles the explosive growth and development of the steam locomotive in America -- from the first British imports to the New York elevated locomotives of the 1880s -- and adds more than fifty new pages of superb illustrations and text.

    Beginning with the early era of locomotive design, White describes the background and methods of the first American builders, the special requirements of American railroads, construction materials, locomotive types, performance, and costs. He then turns to the development of individual components: boilers and running gears, headlights and cowcatchers, sandboxes, bells, and whistles. Throughout, remarkably detailed scale drawings -- many reproduced from the original working drawings -- illustrate design features and modifications.

    For this new edition, White offers eleven new detailed and comprehensive case histories of individual locomotives, beginning with the 1843 La Junta. Each case history provides a wealth of historical background, mechanical information, and engineering analysis. White also includes a special section that updates and annotates the information found in the original edition.

    This beautifully complete and authoritative history stands as a landmark in its field. Now in a new edition, it will continue to delight railroad enthusiasts, model builders, historians of technology, and anyone with an interest in American railroads.

    From reviews of the first edition: "An outstanding engineering and publishing masterpiece." -- Journal of American History

    "The definitive reference work on the technical development of the early locomotive." -- Business History Review

    "White does a splendid job... through the combined use of narrative and over 230 highly detailed, sharp and clear pictures and drawings." -- Civil War History

    Subways: The Tracks That Built New York City

    Subways: The Tracks That Built New York City Lowest new price: $13.30
    Lowest used price: $1.50
    List price: $18.00
    Author: Lorraine B. Diehl

    Manhattan, 1870. As overcrowded horse carts and weary pedestrians push through the clogged city streets, a man named Beach secretly works by candlelight 2112 feet beneath Devlin’s clothing store on Broadway, carving out New York’s very first subway tunnel.

    In the years following the Civil War, New York City experienced unprecedented growth. Commerce boomed as immigrants and tourists poured onto the tiny island in huge numbers. But at a time when commuting distance was measured by the strength of one’s legs and the soles of one’s shoes, the city was unable to expand alongside its population. All of that would change with a few miles of track and a nickel fare.

    In Subways, her highly anticipated follow-up to The Automat, Lorraine Diehl sets off on another sentimental journey, recounting the true story of a city transformed by underground passageways. Through archival photographs, interviews with New Yorkers who “remember when,” and an assortment of rare memorabilia, Diehl introduces us to the entertaining characters who conceived, built, and rode the city’s subways, then travels to the familiar destinations shaped by their tracks.

    From the last days of the horsecars to the remarkable excavation and construction of the tunnels, from an age of elegant wood-and-brass cars to the streamlined stainless-steel rolling stock of the 1940s, from the once-remote reaches of the boroughs to the bustling metropolis of today, to tell the story of the Subways is to tell the story of New York City.

    Brian Solomon. Well into the 1950s, the Southern Pacific operated an extensive fleet of colorful (a color scheme nicknamed "daylight") and highly-regarded passenger trains that became the preferred mode of travel for the West Coast's nouveau riche film stars and businesspeople. This authoritative illustrated history covers the various forms of motive power used, the rolling stock and the SP's services.

Also featured are period advertisements, timetables, and route maps, and coverage of the SP's cooperative efforts with Chicago & North Western, Union Pacific, and Rock Island in forwarding trains overland to Utah, Chicago and St. Louis.
