David Cable 204 Pages hardcover
The railways of the USA have a great following, not only in the United States (where there are large numbers of rail fans) but also increasingly in Britain and Europe, where there are enthusiasts who regularly visit and model North American railroads. The number and variety of these railway operations is both colourful and interesting to enthusiasts, especially the British who are more used to rail transport of a subdued and staid nature. In addition to the major mainline companies, there are numerous short line and industrial concerns who run equally interesting train operations. David Cable has visited the USA on fourteen occasions and has travelled extensively across most of the states, photographing railroads of every shape and size. This book will not only interest enthusiasts in Britain and Europe, but also rail fans in the USA.
