Riassunto: This follow-up to the MBI bestseller Classic American Railroads is a beautiful tribute to 15 additional railroads not included in the first volume. Focusing on the golden age of railroading between World War II and the early 1970s, this all-new book features the histories, locomotives, rolling stock, and memorabilia of railroads like the Delaware & Hudson; Erie Lackawanna; Gulf, Mobile & Ohio; St. Louis-San Francisco Railway; Maine Central; Nickle Plate Road; Southern Railway; Great Northern Railway; and others. Amazingly preserved color photography from the decades covered, along with archival black-and-white images, capture the legendary trains against scenic backdrops across the nation, while period print ads and brochures add a nostalgic element to the stories behind the railroads' passenger and freight operations. Mike Schafer has written several rail-related books for MBI, including Streamliner Memories, Freight Train Cars, and Classic American Railroads.
About the Author: Mike Schafer hails from Rockford, Illinois, where he recalls his earliest train-watching experiences on the Illinois Central, Milwaukee Road, Burlington Route, and Chicago & North Western. He vividly can recall his first train rides, circa 1952, on IC\u2019s Hawkeye and Land O\u2019 Corn between Rockford and Chicago. Eventually he would declare the latter — America\u2019s railroad hub — his \u201chonorary hometown. Mike and his little dog Archie reside in a house (which includes a 1,600-square-foot model railroad) next to BNSF\u2019s busy Twin Cities mainline in a small town outside Chicago where he also serves as village trustee and occasionally mayor pro tem.
