Details: Handsome and well-written history of steam in its last years on the main lines of America. The author provides a detailed discussion of how and why each road adapted to the new diesels and where steam clung on for a few last years. After a general survey, the book spotlights the last steamers on each of the major roads, showing the locomotives in vibrant action. Railroads covered include the UP, SP, Great Northern, the Pennsylvania's Shamokin branch line with its I-1a decapods, Frisco, Santa Fe, Illinois Central, C&O, Canadian Pacific, New York Central, the Missouri-Illinois, Burlington, Norfolk & Western, Grand Trunk Western, B&O, and the L&N. There is even a fascinating section on smaller railroads that were too poor to buy new diesels and were still using 19th century locomotives. Illustrated throughout with crisp black and white photos. Excellent index allows readers to immediately find all photos of the railroad they're interested in. 268 pages.
