9780760344880: North American Railroad Family Trees: An Infographic History of the Industry's Mergers and Evolution

The history of railroading in North America is as much a story of boardroom intrigue as it is a story of the brute force that stamped thousands of miles of train track across a rugged continent. Today’s nine U.S. and Canadian Class I railroads are the result of well over a century of convoluted bankruptcies, mergers, acquisitions, and expansions. North American Railroad Family Trees marks the first time this major aspect of railroad history has been presented in a clear, graphic format, helping the railfan make sense of the many smaller train lines that shaped North American rail as it is today. In these pages, renowned rail author Brian Solomon takes a visual and chronological approach, presenting 50 “family trees” in the style of human lineages. The story begins with the railroads of the “Golden Age” (1890–1930), continuing through the second wave of consolidations between the World Wars, the merger mania of the 1950s through the 1970s, the creation of major passenger networks, and the megamergers of the last three decades that have left railroading close to its current incarnation. Solomon even offers a selection of maps tracing the evolution of the North American rail system and diagrams proposing what-if scenarios for the industry’s future. Including chapter-by-chapter narrative overviews of key eras, along with a selection of rare photography and period advertising to lend historical context, North American Railroad Family Trees provides an unprecedented retrospective of the continent’s iconic rail network.

BRIAN SOLOMON is the author of more than 40 books about locomotives and railroading. He splits his time between Monson, Massachusetts, and Dublin, Ireland.

Dalla quarta di copertina:

The history of railroading in North America is as much a tale of boardroom intrigue as one of conquering a rugged continent by brute force. Today’s nine U.S. and Canadian Class I railroads are the result of more than 150 years of convoluted bankruptcies, mergers, and acquisitions. Now, for the first time, this aspect of North American railroading is presented in a concise visual manner that makes sense of how the industry got to where it is today.   In North American Railroad Family Trees, author Brian Solomon presents 40 charts and a half-dozen maps that help trace the evolution and, in many cases, devolution of railroads, beginning with the industry’s infancy and continuing through its pre-Depression golden age, the consolidations of the inter-war period, the postwar merger mania, the megamergers of the last three decades, and the creation of new passenger networks. Solomon even offers diagrams that ponder what-if scenarios for the industry’s future. Each chapter is accompanied by a narrative overview of the era along with rare photography and period advertising to lend historical context. The result is a unique and engaging historical perspective that deserves a spot on the shelf of any rail enthusiast.   Brian Solomon is the author and photographer of more than 40 books about locomotives and railroading. He splits his time between Monson, Massachusetts, and Dublin, Ireland.
