THE ORIENT - KANSAS CITY, MEXICO AND ORIENT RAILWAY Robert Pounds and John McCall 344 pages hardcover

The dream of promoter Arthur Edward Stilwell, the Kansas City, Mexico & Orient Railway never made it to Kansas City and never made connections with the Oriental trade. Financed without the aide of Wall Street "money trusts," the railroad was constructed in many disconnected sections in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas and the states of Sinaloa and Chihuahua in Mexico. Attempts to link the already-built line from the Mexican seaport of Topolobampo, Sinaloa, and the rest of the system were halted by the formidable Sierra Madre and revolutionary activities in Mexico. And in the United States, progress was slow, due to lack of funds. In fact, Stilwell lost control of the railway in 1912 and it was in the hands of receivers more than once. Were it not for the discovery of oil in west Texas in the 'twenties, the KCM&O might not hve survived to the Depression. As it was, the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway bought it in 1928, completed some of the lines in Texas, and waited for improving business conditions that never came. Arthors Pounds and McCall cover the story of the Orient in rich detail- of the birth, growth tribulations and, finally, the denouement of Arthur Stilwell's grand idea - the Orient Railway - which for over sixty yesrs after remained a quaint, backwater operation of the great Santa Fe Railway system. 313 black & white and 39 color photos, 36 maps and diagrams Tango1

THE RACE UNDERGROUND: BOSTON, NEW YORK AND THE INCREDIBLE RIVALRY THAT BUILT AMERICA'S FIRST SUBWAY Doug Most 416 pages hardcover

In the late nineteenth century, as cities like Boston and New York grew more congested, the streets became clogged with plodding, horse-drawn carts. When the great blizzard of 1888 crippled the entire northeast, a solution had to be found. Two brothers from one of the nation's great families--Henry Melville Whitney of Boston and William Collins Whitney of New York--pursued the dream of his city digging America's first subway, and the great race was on. The competition between Boston and New York played out in an era not unlike our own, one of economic upheaval, life-changing innovations, class warfare, bitter political tensions, and the question of America's place in the world."The Race Underground" is peopled with the famous, like Boss Tweed, Grover Cleveland and Thomas Edison, and the not-so-famous, from brilliant engineers to the countless "sandhogs" who shoveled, hoisted and blasted their way into the earth's crust, sometimes losing their lives in the construction of the tunnels. Doug Most chronicles the science of the subway, looks at the centuries of fears people overcame about traveling underground and tells a story as exciting as any ever ripped from the pages of U.S. history. The Race Underground is a great American saga of two rival American cities, their rich, powerful and sometimes corrupt interests, and an invention that changed the lives of millions. Tango1

THE RAILROAD AND THE ART OF PLACE David Kahler 152 hardcover

In the late 1980s, David Kahler was deeply inspired by seeing an exhibition of O. Winston Link photographs. He soon began making annual trips to the West Virginia and eastern Kentucky coalfields, destinations that strongly resonated with his own aesthetic of モplace.ヤ Armed with a used Leica M6 and gritty Tri-X film, he and his wife made six week-long trips in the dead of winter to photograph trains along the Pocahontas Division of the Norfolk Southern Railway. Nearly one hundred images edited from this body of work form the core of The Railroad and the Art of Place, along with a selection of earlier Pennsylvania Railroad steam-era photographs that reflect Kahlerメs interest in the railroad landscape from an early age. Also included are three essays by Kahler, Scott Lothes, and Jeff Brouws, discussing the personal motivations, historical context, and aesthetic development behind the photography. Tango1

THE RUSTY DUSTY- GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY'S WENATCHEE-OROVILLE BRANCH Mac McCulloch and John Langlot hardcover

The Rusty Dusty is a new hard cover book of nearly 400 pages, 70 maps, and 98 photographs that presents a comprehensive look at the Great Northern's Wenatchee-Oroville branch in Washington State. The book is intended for general readers, historians, and rail fans interested in exploring the fascinating history of how GN's westward expansion substantially influenced the history and economy of the Pacific Northwest. For readers interested in the W-O line specifically, it includes construction and operational detail, with numerous maps and photographs that capture the history of this significant line, which enabled and supported the success of the tree fruit industry that literally feeds the nation. The geographic scope extends from the Canadian Continental Divide and Whitefish, Montana, on the east, to Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, BC, on the west, with emphasis on the territory between Wenatchee and Oroville. The book explores the relationship of the W_O to subjects and issues seldom included in railroad books such as: the geography and geology of the territory it serves, irrigation to support fruit orchards, refrigerator cars and the Western Fruit Express, freight rates and economic regulation, and the local economy of the area served by the railroad. The local economy is crucial. Any railroad can haul only what people consume or what they produce in such volume that they must sell it beyond the local market.The Rusty Dusty lays the historical and geographical groundwork for the W-O line beginning with a summary of James J. Hill's expansion strategy west of Devils Lake, ND. It then describes the construction of the W-O line and the economy of the territory it served. The bulk of the book examines traffic and operations of the W-O under the ownership of the Great Northern, including Wenatchee, Appleyard, ice supply, and the threatened construction of the Wenatchee Southern Railway. Chapter 12 discusses the 1960's line relocations due to the construction of Rocky Reach and Wells dams, while chapter 13 brings the history of the line up to date. Authors John Langlot and Mac McCulloch, who combined have more than 50 years of service with Great Northern and its successors, are uniquely qualified to examine and interpret the Great Northern's remarkable history in Eastern Washington. They describe what it was like to work on the Wenatchee-Oroville branch. They tell the working railroad man's story using materials from long time W-O conductor Orval Dungan and the living memories of co-author John Langlot, who worked the W-O as a brakeman in the 1960s. The authors illustrate the effort and determination of the men who made the Great Northern function, and hope to stand approved by those remaining few who experienced and understand its operations. The Rusty Dusty's three appendices include special interest details that make this book suitable for the general reader without burdening those with a more extensive railroad background with excessive detail in the running text. The first clearly and in careful detail describes early twentieth-century railroad technology, operational issues, and business practices that underlay W-O operations. The second discusses the refrigerator car fleet of the Great Northern Railway and Western Fruit Express which was crucial to moving the fruit traffic. The final appendix summarizes the physical changes to the line as documented by Authority for Expenditure documents. An extensive bibliography and index are included. Tango1

THE TOWN THAT LOVED KATY - PARSONS, KANSAS AND THE MKT RAILROAD I.E. Quastler and James Reisdorff 168 pages softcover

For well over 100 years, there was a close and usually mutually beneficial relationship between the City of Parsons, Kansas, and what became the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad Company (M-K-T or "the Katy"). Parsons, located on rolling prairie land near the southeast corner of Kansas, depended largely on the Katy for its basic employment, those jobs which brought money into the community. In fact, during the first half of that period it was almost a textbook example of a railroad town. Covering the years 1865 to 2012, the authors relate the fascinating story of how Parsons was the site of the Katy's main locomotive repair shop until its merger with the Union Pacific in 1988. The book includes 115 b&w photos and illustrations. Tango1

THE TRAIN DOESN'T STOP HERE ANY MORE -ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF CANADIAN RAILWAY STATIONS Ron Brown 192 pages softcover

Despite the "green" benefits of rail travel, Canada has lost much of its railway heritage. Across the country stations have been bulldozed and rails ripped up. Once the heart of communities large and small, stations and tracks have left little more than a gaping hole in Canada's landscapes. This book revisits the times when railways were the country's economic lifelines, and the station the social centre. Here was where we worked, played, listened to political speeches, or simply said goodbye to loved ones. The landscapes that grew around the station are also explored and include such forgotten features as station hotels, restaurants, gardens, and the once-common railway YMCA. Railway companies often hired the world's leading architects to design grand station buildings that ranged in style from chateauesque to art deco. Even small-town stations and wayside shelters displayed an artistic flare and elegance. Although most have vanished, the book celebrates the survival of that heritage in stations that have been saved or remain in use. The book will appeal to anyone who has links with our rail era, or who simply appreciates the value of Canada's built heritage. Tango1

THE UN-DRIVING OF THE GOLDEN SPIKE Jeff Terry, Thornton Waite and James Reisdorff 80 pages softcover

The driving of the Golden Spike at Promontory Summit, located in the high desert region of northern Utah, marked the completion of the first Transcontinental Railroad on May 10, 1869. Seventy-three years later, on September 8, 1942, the Golden Spike was "un-driven" at Promontory Summit during a brief ceremony that largely replicated the original event in reverse. The tracks were then torn up for military use during World War II, whereafter Promontory Summit was largely forgotten. This is the illustrated story of the un-driving of the Golden Spike in 1942 and the various personalities involved. It's also the story of a century-long struggle to have America rediscover the significance of Promontory Summit, which culminated in the establishment of the Golden Spike National Historic Site. Includes 75 historic b&w photographs and one map. Tango1

THIRTY YEAR WAR A HISTORY OF DETROIT'S STREETCARS 1892-1922 Neil Lehto 338 pages hardcover

Control over streetcar franchises around the turn of the twentieth century was highly coveted. Since the streetcar was the main mode of transportation, this control was simultaneous with having power over how and where people were transported throughout the city, making it an incredible political tool. The Thirty-Year War was a battle waged by the City of Detroit against the politically powerful and deeply entrenched corporations that owned streetcar franchises for control of the city s streetway system between 1892 and 1922. This compelling history shows how and why the owners of public utilities monopoly franchises will protect and defend their privilege against public ownership or control, and is an example of how one city successfully fought back.

TO THE EDGE OF THE WORLD- THE STORY OF THE TRANS-SIBERIAN EXPRESS THE WORLD'S GREATEST RAILROAD Christian Wolmar 283 pages hardcover

"To the Edge of the World" is an adventure in travel--full of extraordinary personalities, more than a century of explosive political, economic, and cultural events, and almost inconceivable feats of engineering. Christian Wolmar passionately recounts the improbable origins of the Trans-Siberian railroad, the vital artery for Russian expansion that spans almost 6,000 miles and seven time zones from Moscow to Vladivostok. The world's longest train route took a decade to build--in the face of punishing climates, rampant disease, scarcity of funds and materials, and widespread corruption. The line sprawls over a treacherous landmass that was previously populated only by disparate tribes and convicts serving out their terms in labor camps--where men were regularly starved, tortured, or mutilated for minor offenses. Once built, it led to the establishment of new cities and transformed the region's history. Exceeding all expectations, it became, according to Wolmar, "the best thing that ever happened to Siberia." It was not all good news, however. The railroad was the cause of the 1904-1905 Russo-Japanese War, and played a vital--and at times bloody--role in the Russian Revolution and the subsequent Civil War. More positively, the Russians were able to resist the Nazi invasion during the Second World War as new routes enabled whole industries to be sent east. Siberia, previously a lost and distant region, became an inextricable part of Russia's cultural identity. And what began as one meandering, single-track line is now, arguably, the world's most important railroad. Tango1

TRACKS AROUND MOUNT UNION Frank Kyper 134 pages softcover

The south-central Pennsylvania borough of Mount Unions bustling industrial concerns were facilitated by a comprehensive web of both standard and narrow gauge rail lines. While the Pennsylvania Railroads standard gauge mainline bisected the town, it was truly Mount Unions four separate narrow gauge operations that turned the small Pennsylvania borough into the narrow gauge capital of the East. Within the towns borders, the famous East Broad Top Railroad, a three-foot gauge coal-hauling line, shared a sprawling dual gauge rail yard with the PRR. Additional three-foot gauge equipment was employed to mine and deliver ganister rock to the Harbison-Walker Refractories Companys twin silica brick plants, and the PRR itself even operated a diminutive two-foot gauge railroad to service the railroads crosstie treatment plant. A short 27.5 gauge tramway operated during the 19th century along the east bank of the Juniata River. Tracks Around Mount Union tells the story of an under-recognized railroad town that was once teeming with the roar of steam locomotives and the pungent aroma of coal smoke. Tango1
