Descrizione articolo


Fascinating and detailed history of the Barney and Smith Car Company (1849-1921), the premier railcar manufacturer in the United States during the 19th century which was famed for its intricately carved wooden interiors. The company made passenger cars, freight cars, sleeping cars, street cars, interurbans, wheels, axles and truck sets. The book examines the growth of the company as it established a massive supply chain that included complete iron and brass foundries, timber mills, assembly shops and even included the establishment of the Kossuth Colony for its workers from Hungary. It then analyses why the company, once it became a public corporation in 1892, lost its footing and twice entered bankruptcy before going out of business in 1921. With chapters on its relationship with George Pullman, its timber operations in Georgia, the Thresher Varnish Co, Smith Vaile & Co., and other suppliers, and on subsidiaries such as the Dayton Manufacturing Co., the largest manufacturer of hardware for passenger cars. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and schematic diagrams. Includes extensive (46 page) reconstructed builder's roster for passenger, freight and electric equipment. With bibliography. 212 pages with index.
