Ever since Charlie Castner wrote his epic full issue article in the December 1972 Trains Magazine on the Louisville & Nashville’s “Big Emma” locomotives, he, and a dedicated group of individuals from the L&N Railroad Historical Society, have continued to research the company’s fleet of 42 of these remarkable 2-8-4s. Now, 52 years later, the L&NRHS and The Garbely Publishing Company have partnered to publish this definitive book on their design, construction, and operation between 1942 and 1956 — pulling (and pushing) fast freights, enormous coal drags, and even some passenger trains. The story is largely told through the long gone voices of those who designed, built, maintained, and operated these locomotives. Illustrations include maps, diagrams, route profiles, art, and a variety of black & white and very rare color images. Don’t miss out on this amazing new title covering one of North America’s most iconic steam locomotives!
