Trains Across the Continent
North American Railroad History
Second Edition
Rudolph Daniels

A wonderfully readable, illustrated guide to the history of railroads in America.

Trains Across the Continent is everything you need to know about railroad history―both educational and enjoyable reading." ―Dean Bruce, President, Railroad Education Training Association

Trains Across the Continent should be in every public school library in the country. Quickly and concisely Dr. Daniels leads you through the maze of building, merging, and a myriad of other details necessary to understand modern railroading. Steam, diesel, passenger, and freight are all carefully explained on a national scale rather than railroad specific, making this book even more of a useful tool for the student." ―Donald D. Snoddy, Historian, Union Pacific Railroad

Trains Across the Continent" is a truly comprehensive account of how railroads helped shape, and are continuing to shape, the history of North America." ―Jonathan B. Hanna, Historian, Canadian Pacific Railway

Nothing but positive comments about it from faculty and students alike.... The industry bible in this area." ―Phillip B. Cypret, Sacramento City College

Professor Daniels displays both passion and scholarship in this nicely arranged buffet of subjects both large and minute, important and interesting, serious and fun, to present a delicious overview of railroad history." ―James D. Porterfield, author of Dining by Rail

Daniels manages to make brief mention of all major points of North American railroad history... from the workings of a steam locomotive to the dawn of the railroad mega-merger, nearly every conceivable aspect of railroading receives attention.... This volume is a must for those wishing to broaden or hone their knowledge of the birth and evolution of the railroad industry in North America." ―Rail News

Updated maps, new appendices, a greatly expanded bibliography, detaile
