HOUSTON NORTH SHORE Regularly $36.75 On sale until Feb 15th, 2015 or while supplies last.

Charles Robinson & Paul DeVerter 164 pages hardcover

The Houston North Shore Railway, opened in June 1927, occupies the position of being the last new interurban railway built in the United States. Promoted and built by Harry K Johnson, who had previously built 6 other electric lines, the Houston North Shore was taken over by the Missouri Pacific Railroad just before it was opened to traffic. Its route of 33 miles linked Goose Creek, Texas, now part of Baytown, to the important Houston rail center. Built with the idea of servicing the passenger and agricultural needs of the area and most importantly the industrial needs of the large Humble Oil refinery in Baytown, it quickly became a highly profitable source of freight revenues for that major railroad system. Missouri Pacific continued to operate the interurban passenger service first with electric railway cars, later with a partial replacement with autorailers and finally with unique railbuses, for a total of 34 years. The railroad offered this passenger service mostly at a lost in the interest of keeping its largest freight customer, Humble Oil, happy. The Houston North Shore, now expanded and absorbed by the Union Pacific Railroad, continues today as a busy part of the national rail network. Of the thousands of miles of electric interurban route constructed and later abandoned in this country, the Houston North Shore survives today as an example of an ultimately successful interurban project.

KANSAS CITY SOUTHERN RAILWAY Regularly $21.50 On sale until Feb 15th, 2015 or while supplies last.

Thad Carter 128 pages softcover Arcadia

The Kansas City Southern Railway initially offered freight service to the immediate Kansas City area and southern points. As the line expanded towards Texas, each tiny community had its own railway station with access to daily passenger service and less-then-carload lot freight services. No one could have foreseen that the road would eventually haul international import and export goods or that its line would reach into Mexico. Photographs in this book include coverage of the railway's steam locomotives and pictures from the files of esteemed rail photographers Harold K. Vollrath and Gary Coates. Kilo1

KANSAS CITY STREETCARS FROM HAYBURNERS TO STREAMLINERS Regularly $50.75 On sale until Feb 15th, 2015 or while supplies last.

Ed Conrad

When it came to rail-based mass transit, Kansas City had it all. From the first horse car line to the last streetcar lone, the KC transit scene was replete with every type of public transit during its 88 years of existence- horse cars, cable cars, steam dummies and a host of electric streetcars from primitive, home-built sparkers lurching over unpaved streets to sleek, modern PCCs, gliding along miles of private right of ways. This is the saga of a great streetcar system created from dozens of smaller lines during America's transformation from an agrarian nation to an industrial colossus, mirroring Kansas City's leap from frontier cow town to a commercial and industrial gateway to the entire southwest; its success during years of dominance; its decline during a world wide economic collapse and the onslaught of rubber tire competition; and its postwar disintegration resulting from suburban sprawl coupled with America's love affair with the automobile.

LOGGING IN THE CENTRAL SIERRAS Regularly $21.50 On sale until Feb 15th, 2015 or while supplies last.

Carolyn Fregulia 128 pages softcover Arcadia

The logging industry in the Central Sierra was essential to the expanding economies of both California and Nevada for well over 150 years. During the Gold Rush, harvested timber in the foothill region of the Sierra was used for mining activities, in the construction of early day communities, and as fuel. Extensive logging of forestland in the higher elevations came with the advent of hard-rock mining, which required incredible quantities of timber. During the 1860s, the Comstock Lode of Nevada put a tremendous demand for lumber on the east slope of the Sierra. By the time the Comstock had concluded, much of the eastern face was denuded, with over one quarter of the prehistoric forest gone. Advances in technology further fueled the logging industry during the first half of 20th century. The Sierra's logging days are waning now, but as this volume shows, it once played a vital role in the mountains' economy, lifestyle, and identity. Lima1

Edward Kaminski 128 pages softcover Arcadia

Originally settled by Dutch farmers in the 1600s, the borough of Maywood experienced population and industrial growth in the late 1800s with the coming of the railroad. New Jersey Midland Railway, predecessor to the New York, Susquehanna and Western Railroad, arrived in 1872, a time when Maywood consisted mainly of farmland. Maywood was incorporated in 1894, when the railroad expanded into the Pennsylvania coalfields. The railroad provided the means for transportation of people, goods, and services, and Maywood grew measurably with it into the 20th century. Today the borough has developed into a suburb of such iconic cities as New York City, Paterson, Passaic, and Hackensack, while still retaining its character and charm. Motor1

Jim Scribbins 168 pages softcover

The Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific was a railroad with a big personality. For a time it offered the world's fastest steam-powered passenger trains. Extending from Indiana to Puget Sound, it crossed five mountain ranges in Montana, Idaho, and Washington. It was also the first railroad to prove the feasibility of long distance movement of heavy trains by electricity. All-welded freight and passenger cars were pioneered in its shops, and Milwaukee Road mechanical engineers planned the first streamlined steam locomotives intended for sustained 100 mph speeds. In Milwaukee Road Remembered eminent railway historian Jim Scribbins provides a richly illustrated history of the unique challenges and successes of this storied railroad. Motor1

MONON RAILROAD IN SOUTHERN INDIANA Regularly $19.50 On sale until Feb 15th, 2015 or while supplies last.

David Longest 128 pages softcover Arcadia

In the spring of 1847, James Brooks met with six associates in Providence to forever change the face of transportation in Indiana. The New Albany and Salem Rail Road Company was born as a result of this historic meeting. Today this railroad, most often called the Monon, is only a memory of a time when trains streaked across the hills and farmland of southern Indiana. The Monon Railroad in Southern Indiana examines the real purpose of railroads as movers of people and the products they devoted their lives to producing and focuses on areas from New Albany to Bloomington. It identifies the only two counties in Indiana that were a part of the Salem limestone district and gives a glimpse of how the stone was removed from the earth and eventually formed into some of the nation's most beloved buildings and structures. It also takes a look at the history of several lumber-based industries and the famed products that they manufactured. New Albany was once known across America as a key producer of hardwood plywood, used in custom cabinetry, and the Showers Brothers Furniture Company of Bloomington was once the largest manufacturer of furniture in America. This book talks about the industries that created the cities and towns that many Hoosiers called home. Motor1

MORRIS COUNTY TRACTION COMPANY Regularly $27.75 On sale until Feb 15th, 2015 or while supplies last.

Larry Lowenthal & William Greenberg Jr 136 pages softcover

THRIVING prosperous communities in Morris and Union Counties, New Jersey, presented an attractive target during the trolley mania that swept America early in the 20th Century. Backed by prominent individuals in the area, the Morris County Traction Co. was formed to serve this population. Its first trolley car rumbled through Dover on a glorious day in 1904, but after that it took more than ten years to complete the system. Eventually, the company operated about 50 miles of lines, extending from Lake Hopatcong and Boonton through Dover, Morristown, Summit and other communities to Union and Maplewood, with connections to Elizabeth and Newark. The mature MCT was typical of the entire electric railway industry: it strove to provide good, dependable service, but soon found itself engaged in an endless battle to survive against a multitude of threats. Although its cars transported over seven million passengers a year-workers, shoppers, school children and postmen-it was finally worn down by industry-wide problems and the proliferation of automobiles and gave up the struggle in 1928. The failure of the MCT provides a vivid example of how events of the 1920s wiped out an enormous investment in electric railways and shaped the transportation system and the human landscape we see today.

Fred Runner 128 pages softcover

A hundred years ago, high on the summit of Mount Tamalpais, stood a grand lodge with a breathtaking view. For 33 years, elegantly dressed men and women came to visit on the gritty steam trains of a famous twisting railroad known affectionately as the Crookedest Railroad in the World. They could dine, dance, and spend the night, and in the morning coast down the mountain in a gravity car. The Mount Tamalpais Scenic Railway had 281 curves in 8 1/5 miles. It had a branch into Muir Woods. It was built by business-minded conservationists in seven months in 1896 and climbed from a depot on the dirt streets of Mill Valley through a redwood forest and on to the rocky summit one-half mile above San Francisco Bay.

MOUNTAIN VIEW TROLLEY LINE Regularly $21.50 On sale until Feb 15th, 2015 or while supplies last.

William Rogers Jr 128 pages softcover

The Mountain View Trolley was established on July 10, 1907, after booming tourism increased the need for transportation between Stroudsburg and the town of Delaware Water Gap. In the late 1800s, visitors began flocking to the region to enjoy the beautiful scenery and pristine wildlife. Built by the J. R. Brill Company in Philadelphia, the Mountain View Trolley ran on a narrow-gauge track and was capable of hauling a large number of passengers. The trolley cars operated on overhead wires and battery power and ran year-round, shuttling residents and visitors and working as a school bus for local schoolchildren. The introduction of motor coaches and automobiles brought about the end of the trolley age, and the Mountain View Trolley ended its run in September 1928. Motor1

NEW LONDON COUNTY (CT) TROLLEYS Regularly $19.50 On sale until Feb 15th, 2015 or while supplies last.

Connecticut Motor Coach Museum 128 pages softcover Arcadia

Railroads were instrumental to the growth of industry in America. Streetcar systems branched off from railroad lines, extending transportation to urban and rural areas not otherwise accessible. The expansion of the trolley system in New London County also revitalized industry in the area. By the 1860s, the number of farms in Connecticut had begun to decline, and the need for reliable, reasonable transportation to towns and cities increased. The Norwich Horse Railroad, incorporated in 1864, was followed by various other trolley companies, including the Norwich Street Railway Company, the New London Horse Railroad, the New London Street Railway, and the Montville Horse Railway. Trolley transportation was finally electrified in 1889, fueling the expansion of trolley networks in Norwich and New London. The increase in trolley service allowed the textile industry to grow by expanding access to a sufficient workforce. The system also worked in reverse, enabling city dwellers to escape to the country for outings. November1

"Sydney Stevens 128 pages softcover

For nearly 40 years, the quirky little narrow gauge railroad, begun in 1889 by the Ilwaco Railway & Navigation Company, ran along the North Beach Peninsula in southwestern Washington. The train provided the primary transportation link from Ilwaco in the south to Nahcotta in the north, making the peninsula communities accessible to one another and supplying a reliable route to outside markets for the area's major industries- oystering, logging and cranberry farming. A tide table, not a timetable, governed the railroad's schedule, allowing coordination with steamers that met the train at either end of its daily journeys. Old-Timers in the area still speak affectionately of the trains unorthodox schedule and its informal and accomodating service. And they remember with fondness that the IR&N was widely known as the 'Irregular Ramblin' & Never-get-there Railroad'. November1 "

Highlighted are various classes of steam locomotives like the K4 4-6-2, S1 6-4-4-6 Duplex and T1 4-4-4-4 Duplex, diesels like Alco RS models, Baldwin end-cab switchers, Fairbanks-Morse Train Master, Electromotive GP series, F-units and E-units, along with the legendary bi-directional, center-cab GG1 electric locomotive.
