NARROW GAUGE IN THE ARRAS SECTOR BEFORE, DURING & AFTER THE FIRST WORLD WAR Martin & Joan Farebrother 274 pages Hardcover

The Arras sector of the Western Front in World War I (WW1) was held partly by the British and Dominions 1st Army from September 1915, and almost wholly by the 1st and 3rd Armies from March 1916. No less than in the Ypres sector to the north and the Somme sector to the south, the struggles of the French and then British troops in this sector were pivotal to the outcome of the War. The sector included countryside in the south, but in the north a major part of the industrial and coal-mining area of northern France, around Lens and B_thune. In this book the contribution of metre and 60 cm gauge railways to the Allied war effort in this sector is examined in the context of the history of the metre gauge lines already established. The build up of light (60 cm gauge) lines from 1916 is examined in detail area by area, and the contribution of the related metre gauge lines is reassessed, from British and French sources. After the War the role of these railways in the reconstruction and recovery of this devastated region of France is described. Later the surviving part of the 60 cm gauge network served the sugar beet industry east of Arras. The history is followed through another World War to the closure of the last of these railways in 1957. The book refers to previous works on British War Department light railways in WW1, but contains sufficient general information for readers new to the subject. It also describes how to find key locations now, and how and where rolling stock can be seen. Six walks and an urban tour are included for those who wish to explore the territory in greater depth.

NARROW GAUGE TO BOSTON - A NOSTALGIC WINDOW ON THE BOSTON REVERE BEACH & LYNN RAILROAD Frank Kyper 112 softcover

There was relatively little the Boston, Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad in eastern Massachusetts had in common with most of its three-foot gauge cousins across the United States. Its fleet of diminutive Bogie-type steam locomotives scooted over an eight-mile, sea-level, double-track main line from East Boston to Lynn, plus along a double-track loop branch line through the community of Winthrop, while hauling long strings of wood passenger cars. Only one leading commodity was ever carried on the BRB&L -- passengers from surrounding bedroom communities bound to and from Boston. The railroad interchanged only with its own fleet of ferryboats that carried passengers across Boston Harbor. The BRB&L undertook a costly conversion from steam to electric power on the eve of the Great Depression, only to meet its demise in 1940. Depicted in more than 150 rare illustrations is the unique story of traveling by Narrow Gauge to Boston. November1

NARROW GAUGE TO THE SAN JUANS Sam Furukawa 176 pages Hardcover

IT WAS THE GREAT age of railroad expansion in the American west. In 1879 the Denver & Rio Grande Rail-way began building its San Juan Extension. The rails pushed west from Alamosa, Colorado, heading for the rich mining districts of the San Juan Mountains. The goal was Silverton, Colorado, and in all, the route would total 245 miles. D&RG's successor, the Denver & Rio Grande Western, ran until 1968. Two segments of the line were saved to be operated as historic railroad experiences. The Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad operates from Antonito, Colorado, to Chama, New Mexico, and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad runs trains between the Colorado towns of its name. The photos in this book, shot in the 21st Century, document the trains that run over 10,015-foot Cumbres Pass and through the deep Animas River Gorge to fabled Silverton, Colorado. Join photographer Sam Furukawa and head west from Antonito, Colorado, on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad to Chama, New Mexico. After chapters on three miraculously restored locomotives - Eureka, D&RGW No. 315, and D&RGW No. 463 -continue your journey to Silverton, Colorado, on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge. November1

NASHVILLE, CHATTANOOGA & ST. LOUIS RY HISTORY & STEAM LOCOS Richard Prince 196 pages Hardcover

Railroad buffs, historians, and casual readers alike will be delighted by the reappearance of Richard E. Prince's Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway. It was originally published in 1967, and its reputation as the foremost work on this railroad is still unchallenged. The NC&StL Railway originated in 1845 as the Nashville and Chattanooga RR. Taken over by the Union Army during the Civil War, it suffered extensive damage from Confederate attack but was rebuilt and operated by the U.S. Military Railroad for over two years. Returned to its owners in September 1865, it became the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Ry. in 1873, after absorbing the Nashville & Northwestern RR. During the next 25 years, it became known to the public first as the Tennessee Line, then as the Lookout Mountain Route. In 1890 it gained entrance into Atlanta as lessee of the state-owned Western & Atlantic RR. Paducah and Memphis were reached in 1896, when lines of the former Paducah, Tennessee & Alabama RR were leased from L&N. At its zenith in the 1920s, it operated approximately 1,259 miles of track, from the Mississippi and Ohio rivers through Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama, to Atlanta, Georgia. In 1880, to eliminate the threat of competition that was developing between the two companies, the Louisville & Nashville RR acquired control of the NC&StL Ry., much to the dismay of the citizens of Nashville, and for the next 77 years it operated as a prosperous subsidiary of the Old Reliable. It was actually absorbed by the L&N organization in 1957 to become part of the Nashville and W&A divisions. But it will always be remembered by the people of Tennessee and Georgia as the original Dixie Line_the route of such Chicago-Florida passenger trains as the Dixie Flyer, Dixie Limited, Dixie Express, Dixie Mail, Dixieland, Dixie Flagler, and Dixiana. Maps, schedules, rosters, diagrams, and hundreds of photographs supplement historical information on the company and technical information on the trains.

NASHVILLE'S STREETCARS & INTERURBAN RAILWAY Ralcon Wagner 128 pages softcover

Nashville's 150-year public transportation heritage is a rich and colorful one that began in 1866 when two private companies, the McGavock and Mount Vernon Horse Railroad Company and the South Nashville Street Railroad Company, commenced operation. The first cars were mule powered. During the 1880s, as streetcar routes became longer and too strenuous for animal power, steam dummy lines were introduced. On April 30, 1889, Nashville became one of the earliest cities served by electric street railways, developing a 70-mile system by 1915. In addition to its advanced streetcar system, Nashville was also served by two interurban railway systems. Over time, improved roads and affordable cars caused ridership on public transportation to drop rapidly. By February 1941, buses had replaced the last of the city's aging streetcars. The traction era had come to an end. November1

NEVADA'S VIRGINIA & TRUCKEE RAILROAD Stephen Drew 128 pages Softcover

The Virginia & Truckee is the most famous short line railroad in American history. Brainchild of William Sharon and the Bank of California, the V&T hauled the silver and gold ore, the cordwood, and the mining timbers that made the 1870s Big Bonanza a reality. From the state capital at Carson City, V&T rails stretched 66 miles to Virginia City, Reno, and Minden, Nevada. Serving the transportation needs of the Comstock's nearly 40,000 inhabitants, the V&T remained in operation until 1950. The enormously successful railroad paid its early owners handsome dividends. The V&T's ornate locomotives and cars have starred in hundreds of Hollywood productions and are now preserved in US museums. Since 1976, fourteen miles of the railroad have been restored to operation. The Virginia & Truckee has become an enduring legend.

NEW HAVEN RAILROAD IN THE MCGINNIS ERA Marc Frattasio 256 pages hardcover

Although the New Haven was always an interesting railroad, it took on a larger than life character after Patrick B. McGinnis became its president on April 14, 1954. Unquestionably the most outspoken and controversial railroad executive of his time, McGinnis believed that the ailing railroad industry's greatest handicap was its lack of modern thinking and that his ideas-if universally adopted-could lead the railroads into the future. McGinnis used the New Haven as a laboratory to test his many bold ideas for revitalizing the railroad industry. As a result of his experiments and flair for publicity, the New Haven remained fixed in the public spotlight throughout the 22 months of his administration as no other railroad has ever been, before or since. Over 500 illustrations. November1
