Riguardo questo articolo

A comprehensive study of steam and diesel railroading in one particulary county in California - Santa Clara - from the 1860's to 1985. What now might be only rusting, weed-infested spur trackage was once throbbing main line; virtual wars have been fought over features of the Valley landscape that go unnoticed today by both motorists and railroaders. Map endpapers. 191 pages with rare photographs, maps and rosters. Small name stamp on the reverse of the front endpaper. Fine in fine and bright dust jacket. Codice inventario libreria 26001
