9780760343708: North America Locomotives: The Illustrated Encyclopedia
Reseña del editor:

Spanning more than 150 years, this tome examines the steam, diesel, and electric locomotives that have plied North American rails since the midnineteenth century. Encyclopedic in its approach, the book describes every major type; because locomotive-building has long been a made-to-order business, the book is arranged alphabetically by railroads to show the variant technologies railways ordered to best suit their specific needs. The 75-plus railroads covered range from the best-known historical lines to today’s major roads, commuter lines, and selected short lines. The result is a profusely illustrated and beautifully presented reference that features more than 400 locomotive gems through the ages, from historic machines such as New York Central’s J3a Hudsons, Pennsylvania Railroad’s GG1 electrics, and EMD’s classic E- and F-Units, to today’s most powerful modern diesels. All the major builders—past and present—are represented, including such heavyweights as Baldwin, Alco, Lima, EMD, GE, and more.

Contraportada:

Spanning more than 150 years of railway locomotive technology, this invaluable volume examines the wide variety of steam, diesel, and electric locomotives that have powered North American railroads through the decades. Because locomotive-building has long been a made-to-order business, the book is arranged alphabetically by railroads to give readers a better understanding of how specific technologies suited specific needs, whether for freight, passenger, or switching operations. The railroads covered range from legendary fallen flags to today's major roads, commuter lines, and selected short lines. The resulting reference is profusely illustrated with rare historic and previously unpublished modern photography and features dozens of motive-power gems from the likes of Alco, Baldwin, Electro-Motive, GE, and more. Brian Solomon is the author of more than 40 books about locomotives and railroading. He splits his time between Monson, Massachusetts, and Dublin, Ireland.

Descripción Voyageur Press Inc, United States, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 307 x 259 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Spanning more than one and a half centuries, this treasure trove examines the steam, diesel, and electric locomotives that have have kept North American commerce on the rails since the middle of the nineteenth centuty. Prolific rail author Brian Solomon takes an encyclopedic approach and describes every major type. And because locomotive-building has long been a made-to-order business, the book is arranged alphabetically by railroads from across the United States and Canada to show the variant technologies that railroads ordered to best suit their specific needs, whether for freight or passenger operations. The 75-plus railroads covered range from the best known historical lines such as Canadian Pacific, Santa Fe, Union Pacific, and Baltimore Ohio, to today s giant Class I roads, commuter lines, and selected short lines. The result is a profusely illustrated and beautifully presented reference guide that features more than 400 locomotive gems from throughout the ages, including historic machines such as New York Central s J3a Hudsons, Pennsylvania Railroad s GG1 electrics, and EMD s classic E- and F-Units, to today s most powerful modern diesels. All the major builders past and present are represented, including such heavyweights as Baldwin, Alco, Lima, EMD, GE, and more. Nº de ref. de la librería AA29780760343708
