80 pp, oblong large 8vo (9 15/16" H x 10 3/4" D), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with color photographs. ISBN 04953028 "The steam locomotive dominated land transport for over a century - and disappeared in a little over a decade . Although the age of the steam locomotive is over, the romance of the period lives on in hundreds of lovingly preserved engines and railroads across the continent, from Florida to Vancouver. To visit these lines is to visit history. Th i s h a n d s o m e volume, with its informative text and nearly one hundred stunning full-color photographs, is a delightful introduction to the world of steam railroading. Covering the broad spectrum of preserved locomotives in North America, th es e m ag ni fi ce nt p ic tures show the many types of steam engines. Revealing detail shots show how they work and explain the basics of railroad operations. The lost world of steam railroading comes to life again in the pages of this spectacul ar bo ok ." Mi nor ed ge wea r. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling, a few very light rub lines and two tiny areas of delamination on rear panel. Very Good+/Very Good
