9780253214119: Trains Across the Continent: North American Railroad History

With this publication of the second edition of Trains Across the Continent, author Rudolph Daniels brings us up-to-date on the recent developments in North American Railroading and further augments the wonderful usefulness of the first edition. Without losing any of the material in the first edition he turns his discerning historian's eye to such previously unexplored topics as the problematic freight-breakdown in the merger of the Union Pacific and the Southern Pacific. He explores the implications of NAFTA for the North American railroads, the breakup of Conrail, and the electrification of the northeast corridor. Now is a time of ferment in the railroad industry and Daniels continues to provide students of railroading insights and the delineation of essential features. Updated maps, a new appendix with basic facts such as track mileage and freight tonnage, a greatly expanded bibliography, plus a detailed discussion of the diesel locomotive and railroad electrification further round out the usefulness of Trains Across the Continent as the complete and concise introduction to North American railroads.
