Book by Yenne Bill


Those devoted to elegant passenger trains and to Great Northern Railway will enjoy it --Rail History

This is mostly a history of James Hill and the Great Northern Railroad. If someone is trying to build an accurate model of the passenger train the Empire Builder or the Great Northern Railroad they won't find the information they need here. There is little information about the trains themselves, the facilities, or the equipment they used. There's a lot more background information than I've seen in other books, and more history of the business side of GN than in other books. --Max Smart

This book starts with a biography of Great Northern Railroad founder, James J. Hill. It then goes on to a history lesson about the building of the Great Northern Railroad and its early years. Next comes a picture of the inauguration of the Empire Builder and its early service as a heavyweight luxury train. Finally, the book addresses the post World War 2 streamlined version of the train. There are some colored pictures of the streamliner and of several color ads touting the luxury features of the train and the magnificent trip through the Rocky Mountains. I wish the pictures of the ads were larger, so that I could read the copy without a magnifying glass. This book gives a good picture of the development of the Northwest and the part played in this development by Great Northern and the Empire Builder --GGrossman
