Descripción

2006, new copy, reprint edition, paper covers, spiral binding, 223 pages, 200 hundred rare illustrations, 32 track charts, maps and plans., index.---------------------------------------Charles S. Small, A professional engineer, having a lifelong interest in steam railroading and whose work has carried him to the capitols and hinterlands around the world, has written extensively about the interesting lines encountered during his work and travels.With the disappearance of almost all of these fascinating relics of a bygone age he has now devoted his efforts toward the history of unusual railroads. .In this book, with 200 illustrations, he reveals a line which carried fantastic tonnages on four gauges whose origin was a streak of rust spawned by the California gold rush.Rather than use a million words the story unfolds, under two flags, by a series of photographs, reproduced full size from the original negatives. Most of the photographs came from the camera of Ernest Hallen who devoted his entire career to photographing the Panama Canal. Supplemented by 32 maps and drawings the result is a unique documentary of the key role steam railroading played in the world's largest single construction effort. N° de ref. de la librería 34129
