GARRATT LOCOMOTIVES - 1925 CATALOG REPRINT softcover

From 1855 to 1966 nearly 8,000 railroad locomotives were built at Gorton Foundry, near Manchester, England, by Beyer, Peacock & Co. Ltd. Some of these steam locomotives were the famous elongated Garratts which have fascinated railfans for years.The 11-1/4" x 8-1/2' softbound reprinted catalog features a four-color cover, and shows Garrett locomotives that were delivered to the Argentine North-Eastern Railway, Burma Railways, Benguella Railway, Indian State Railway, London & North-Eastern Railway, Mauritius Government Railways, Rhodesia Railways, South African Railways and the Victorian Government Railways, along others. The Garrett locomotive allowed railroads to increase tonnage and reduced operating time between stations and the number of trains run on a line. In the 1925 catalog, the Garratts shown had tractive effort capabilities of between 7,950 pounds and 69,150 pounds at 75% boiler pressure. 50 b/w illustrations Golf1

GATEWAY TO THE NORTHERN PLAINS Carroll Engelhardt 384 pages hardcover

The book chronicles the story of Fargo and Moorhead's birth and growth. Once just specks on the vast landscape of the Northern Plains, these twin cities prospered, teeming with their own dynamic culture, economy, and politics. Moorhead was the first, boosted by railroad manager Thomas Hawley Canfield, who touted it as superior to Fargo. Amid disputes and deals with entrepreneurs, the railroad company provided land for public schools and churches to speed the refinement of the settlement. Despite Moorhead's earlier start, Northern Pacific Railway chose Fargo as its headquarters, and it became the "Gateway City" to North Dakota. Golf1 "

GE & EMD LOCOMOTIVES Brian Solomon 352 pages softcover

With roots stretching back to the turn of the twentieth century, General Electric and Electro-Motive have designed some of the most iconic locomotives in the history of North American railroading. Now, for the first time, acclaimed rail author Brian Solomon's landmark histories of these manufacturers' North American machines (GE Locomotives, 2003, and EMD Locomotives, 2006) are available in a single photo-packed volume. In GE and EMD Locomotives: The Illustrated History, nearly 400 rare photographs (more than 300 of them in color) are accompanied by thorough histories of the two manufacturers, beginning with their earliest efforts in the 1890s and 1930s, respectively. Solomon brings the story up to date with afterwords detailing such recent developments as GE's revolutionary Evolution locomotives and EMD's SD70ACe and SD70M-2. From General Electric's electrical legends, the Pennsylvania Railroad's E44s, Amtrak's E60s, and Milwaukee Road's Little Joes to EMD's mid-century F units, workhorse GP and SD locomotives, and Dash series, all the way through to the rivals' most cutting-edge modern green designs, GE and EMD Locomotives: The Illustrated History leaves nothing unexamined in the important histories of these industrial giants and the competition that continues to drive them forward.

GENERAL ELECTRIC 70 TON DIESEL LOCOMOTIVES Ronald Sims 172 pages softcover

Never a major component of any Class I railroad roster, the General Electric 70-ton diesel road switcher could be found almost everywhere in American railroading, serving lines that weren't built to accommodate larger locomotives. It was conceived as a -scale model of the EMD SW1 switcher, to be sold with easy financing to shortlines and industries with line-haul operations.Before and during World War II, General Electric did not offer a single railroad locomotive in its catalog. As the war wound down, however, the military's need for small diesel locomotives was certain to dry up. GE needed to find a new market and utilize advanced (for the times) technology to serve it. Undercapitalized steam-powered shortlines and industrial railroads required replacement locomotives that weighed seventy tons or less (both to meet engineer pay requirements and to safely operate on light rail), but with relatively high gearing to allow decent road speeds. Given this opportunity, GE took advantage of advances in diesel engine performance and its already cutting-edge manufacturing techniques to develop a single-engine diesel locomotive with 600 horsepower that weighed thirty tons less than an Alco or Baldwin or EMD switcher rated at the same power. A truly bare-bones machine, the proposed new GE switcher could be sold at a significantly lower base price and be at home on rail too light to support a standard 99-ton switcher. This book that details the 200 domestic and another 200 exported variations of the familiar 70-tonner theme. Over 270 photos, tables and diagrams illustrate examples operating from Canada's Hudson Bay to Chile's Atacama Desert and across the Pacific to Australia and the Philippines. The basic design was adapted to industrial use, as well, with lower gear ratios and build-to-order weights from 65 to 95 tons. Special narrow-gauge units (domestic and export) receive ample photographic attention. A complete production list rounds out the coverage. Golf1

GEORGE MANSFIELD AND THE BILLERICA & BEDFORD RAILROAD Donald Ball 212 pages hardcover

When the Massachusetts towns of Bedford and Billerica clamored for a railroad, George E. Mansfield appeared on the scene and sold them on a new, inexpensive way to build one. He finished the line and it was acclaimed around the world as a brilliant new departure in railroad building. The Billerica and Bedford Railroad delivered everything its promoter said it would but, yet, it failed financially in less than a year. What happened to cause this failure' Using original railroad documents and letters along with newspaper and trade journal articles, the author delves into the behind-the-scenes machinations that plagued this 8_ mile line. The backgrounds of the people involved are explored to determine their goals and motivations. Numerous drawings of the railroad rolling stock and structures are included along with examinations of the technical aspects of line which made it so revolutionary. George Mansfield went on to build the Sandy River Railroad as well as the Bridgton and Saco River Railroad, both of which survived into the 1930s and beyond. After only six years of railroad building, though, Mansfield seemingly vanished from the railroad scene without building another railroad. This is the story of the pioneer two-footer which paved the way for the more successful narrow-gauge lines built in Maine and other locations around the country. It is also the story of the promoter of the Mansfield System of two-foot gauge railroads, who he was, where he came from and what happened to him and his dreams. Golf1

GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL RAILROADS, ENGINEERING & ARCHITECTURE IN NYC Kurt Schlichting 264 pages hardcover

Grand Central Terminal, one of New York City's preeminent buildings, stands as a magnificent Beaux-Arts monument to America's Railway Age, and it remains a vital part of city life today. Completed in 1913 after ten years of construction, the terminal became the city's most important transportation hub, linking long-distance and commuter trains to New York's network of subways, elevated trains, and streetcars. Its soaring Grand Concourse still offers passengers a majestic gateway to the wonders beyond 42nd Street.In Grand Central Terminal, Kurt C. Schlichting traces the history of this spectacular building, detailing the colorful personalities, bitter conflicts, and Herculean feats of engineering that lie behind its construction. Schlichting begins with Cornelius Vanderbilt_"The Commodore"_whose railroad empire demanded an appropriately palatial passenger terminal in the heart of New York City. Completed in 1871, the first Grand Central was the largest rail facility in the world and yet_cramped and overburdened_soon proved thoroughly inadequate for the needs of this rapidly expanding city. William Wilgus, chief engineer of the New York Central Railroad, conceived of a new Grand Central Terminal, one that would fully meet the needs of the New York Central line. Grand Central became a monument to the creativity and daring of a remarkable age. The terminal's construction proved to be a massive undertaking. Before construction could begin, more than 3 million cubic yards of rock and earth had to be removed and some 200 buildings demolished. Manhattan's exorbitant real estate prices necessitated a vast, two-story underground train yard, which in turn required a new, smoke-free electrified rail system. The project consumed nearly 30,000 tons of steel, three times more than that in the Eiffel Tower, and two power plants were built. The terminal building alone cost $43 million in 1913, the equivalent of nearly $750 million today. Some of these costs were offset by an ambitious redevelopment project on property above the New York Central's underground tracks. Schlichting writes about the economic and cultural impact of the terminal on midtown Manhattan, from building of the Biltmore and Waldorf-Astoria Hotels to the transformation of Park Avenue. Schlichting concludes with an account of the New York Central's decline; the public outcry that prevented Grand Central's new owner, Penn Central, from following through with its 1969 plan to demolish or drastically alter the terminal; the rise of Metro-North Railroad; and the meticulous 1990s restoration project that returned Grand Central Terminal to its original splendor. More than a history of a train station, this book is the story of a city and an age as reflected in a building aptly described as a secular cathedral. Golf1

GRAND RAPIDS, GRAND HAVEN AND MUSKEGON RY David Kindem and James Budzynski 128 pages softcover

The Grand Rapids, Grand Haven & Muskegon (GRGH&M) Railway was part of a network of electric railroads that spread across southern Michigan in the early part of the 20th century. For nearly 30 years, the railway connected Grand Rapids with Muskegon and Grand Haven on the Lake Michigan shore. The fast and frequent service it offered transformed life in Coopersville, Nunica, Berlin (now Marne), Fruitport, and other smaller communities along the way. In addition, the railway and the boats of the Goodrich and Crosby steamship lines provided an overnight connection with Chicago and Milwaukee. Moving both people and freight, this interurban had an important impact on both local and regional economies. Images of Rail: The Grand Rapids, Grand Haven & Muskegon Railway traces the history of the electric interurban in West Michigan, telling the story of the growth, operation, and eventual demise of an important electric railway in the region.
