Author: Doug Riddell

List Price: $60.00
Karen's Price: $49.95

Introductory Offer!

 

This book tells the entire history of the "original" auto train -- pre Amtrak Auto-Train.  Its creation from inception to the final days are covered in great detail.  This well-known passenger train had a few glory years before the Louisville, KY expansion failure and its three major accidents.  The auto train ran between Lorton, Virginia and Sanford, Florida over the same route that the current Amtrak's Auto-Train runs.

 

Some Highlights:

  • Very well researched and documented text by railroad historian and author Doug Riddell
  • Over 400 full color images are provided to support the text
  • Numerous interviews were conducted on former auto train employees providing a unique & true history
  • Former auto train employees provided countless photographic images -- a small employee gallery is included (Again something truly unique.)
  • Contains action images of the train -- since the train basically ran overnight and was not easily photographed, these images are very rare.
  • A detail chapter is provided, complete with tables, of the rolling equipment the auto train owned.  Motive power is also included
  • 224 pages, printed hard cover book, high quality Sterling Gloss 80 pound paper

The book's layout design was completed by well-known rail transportation author & publisher Benjamin L. Bernhart.  Mr.  Bernhart took great care in ensuring that the photographs were free of dust, but most of all were color accurate.  You will be impressed with the color quality of this book!  Hard cover.

Rusty Dusty: Great Northern's Wenatchee Oroville Branch
Stock #: KB11169
Author: Mac McCulloch and John E. Langlot

List Price: $65.00
Karen's Price: $54.95

Intoductory Offer!

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 other railroad books.

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.
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. Hard cover.

McCloud River Railroads
Stock #: KB11164
Author: Jeff Moore

List Price: $70.00
Karen's Price: $59.95

Introductory Offer!

The McCloud River country, south and east of towering Mt. Shasta, was one of the premier potential logging territories of California in the late 19th century. A number of small operators were already in the area, though limited by inadequate transportation, when the McCloud River Lumber Company was incorporated in 1896. The following year, the McCloud River Railroad Company was begun by the same owners.

The boom in IPD boxcar leasing was lucrative for a time, but virtually collapsed by 1981. At around the same period, the timber industry all but departed from the McCloud River country, removing the primary freight traffic from the railroad. In 1992, Itel sold the railroad to the Forbis family. They incorporated a new company, the McCloud Railway Company, to conduct operations, and continued through 2008, including the popular Shasta Sunset Dinner Train. But by 2009 traffic had all but vanished, and most of the railroad was scrapped. Included here are more than 385 photographs, many in color and published for the first time, and 41 maps and drawings. The book contains detailed chapters on the history of the different periods of the railroad operation. Traffic data, rosters of locomotives and rolling stock, and financial data are also included. Maps were drawn by John R. Signor using information from the author, with an endsheet map also by Signor. Shortline fans everywhere, and particularly those enthused about logging operatioins, will be enthralled with this book, but the McCloud’s mainline connections mean that many fans of Western railroading will find it interesting and enjoyable too.

sought to reduce the tare (empty) weight of their house cars through the use
various high-strength steel alloys.

In addition to the main line, it included the Spokane passenger line, and Elk River, Metaline Falls, Coeur d’Alene, Moses Lake and Marcellus branches. As these documents are relatively scarce, Merrill Publishing Associates has chosen to reproduce the 1953 Idaho Division condensed track profile chart to share with others interested in the Milwaukee Road. Soft cover.

Chesapeake and Ohio Allegheny 2-6-6-6: A Retrospective
Stock #: KB11069
Author: Karen Parker

List Price: $34.95
Karen's Price: $29.95

SOLD OUT - However it is being Re-printed!

The H-8 class Allegheny was C&O’s ultimate Super Power locomotive and has been treated in countless articles and books, however, nothing has been in print on this important locomotive for 20 years. This new book contains material originally researched by Gene Huddleston and many other prominent locomotive and C&O historians. Additional material has been added and the resulting text gives the reader a complete and thorough understanding of this iconic C&O engine. Over 100 photographs include many which have never been published in any venue before. Also included are drawings and tables which help tell the story of the fabulous years from 1942 to 1956 when these giants were the backbone of C&O’s motive power fleet.

The Allegheny has been the center of controversy and contention as to its place in the history of steam locomotive development and continues to be of interest to railfans, modelers, and historians interested in the history of technology. Arguably, this locomotive was the pinnacle of the steam art in railway motive power. This book will be valuable to the reader regardless of whether he/she has many or all of the previous. Allegheny-related publications and should be in the library of every C&O fan. Hard cover.

Ghost Rails XI, Shenango Valley Steel - Sharon Steel Co.

List Price: $65.00
Karen's Price: $59.95

Ghost Rails XI Shenango Valley Steel is perhaps the most extensive and complicated history covering roughly 200 squares miles, Sharon, New Castle, Youngstown and the Shenango River valley. Complex because of all the railroads covered (Erie, EL RR, NYC, Conrail, Sharpsville, P&LE, B&O, Valley Connecting) and their organizational and track changes, and added to the mix the Penn Ohio streetcar line. Augmenting the historic mix is a detailed and invested steelmaking research into Sharon Steel, USS New Castle Carnegie Works, Shenango Furnaces, the early Sharpsville and West Middlesex blast furnaces, and a touch of Republic Steel, Youngstown.

The center piece of steelmaking obviously is Sharon Steel detailing 100 pages of one of the most customized steel makers in America 1900 to 2000, a survivor of the 1981 American steel crash and yet in operation today as NLMK PA. The Sharon Steel section proceeds thru the entire steelmaking process with the emphasis on strip steel, open hearths, blast furnaces, the Swedish Stora Kaldo (BOF) and electric furnaces. In order to tell the entire history, the author had to go back to Sharon Steel Hoop and its early rival in the strip steel business USS Farrell Works. Hard cover.

Supporters soon nicknamed the units "Presidential Fs" in recognition of their lofty status.

Southern Pacific's Sacramento Shops
Stock #: KB10978
Author: Robert A. Pecotich

List Price: $85.00
Karen's Price: $69.95

Reprinted, Now Available~!

The largest and oldest of SP's General Shops, Sacramento built or rebuilt hundreds of steam and diesel locomotives, and thousands of freight and passenger cars, along with extensive work on passenger and official cars, in its history from 1868 to 1990. This was one of the largest and most productive railroad shops in North America. In the 19th century, many new locomotives for Central Pacific and Southern Pacific were produced at the Shops, along with much rolling stock. From 1890 until the 1920s, SP turned primarily to commercial builders for rolling stock and locomotives, but an outgrowth of assembling a few locomotives during the USRA period was a new spurt of locomotive building, until 1937.

After the end of steam, the Shops were reconfigured for diesel locomotive repair, and in 1969 an immense rebuilding program commenced which was to renew during the 1970s and 1980s more than 500 diesels for further service. Closure of the Shops came in 1990. Author Bob Pecotich has extensively researched the Shops and many of its products, particularly locomotives and official cars, as well as the story of the many thousands of craftsmen who worked there through the decades. The result of thorough study, this is a complete, detailed and well-illustrated history, with many previously unpublished images of work in the Shops and of the many locomotives and rolling stock which the Shops produced, repaired, or rebuilt. Coverage in this book ranges from the earliest days, before the driving of the Gold Spike at Promontory, through most of SP's history, to the final closure. Containing 496 pages, the book contains over 600 photos, along with 21 drawings and maps, and has both a bibliography and an index. The dust jacket image (at left) is a 1930s image of the Erecting Hall at the Shops. Hard Cover. ~Reprinted~

Western Pacific's Final Decade: 72-82
Stock #: KB10885
Author: Ted Benson, Dick Dorn, Dale Sanders, Dave Stanley

List Price: $79.95
Karen's Price: $69.95

Western Pacific was a railroad in transition on January 1, 1972. The resolute David in a marketplace dominated by Southern Pacific's Goliath, long perceived as the scrappy good guy who always tried harder, WP almost succumbed to its positive image. Brought down by the financial burden of the California Zephyr and changing traffic patterns in the post-Vietnam 1970s, the freight-only WP faced a life-or-death battle in an evolving economy. Along the way, the Feather River Route reclaimed the national spotlight by hiring one of the country's most-talked about railroad executives, Alfred E. Perlman. Surviving to merge with Union Pacific in 1982, WP's final hours were, in many ways, its finest. WP's family of Willing People are the stars of the show. Whether battling Sierra blizzards, working long nights on the Nevada desert, copying train orders, or looking at the world through the windshield of an F7, readers get to see the line through the railroaders' eyes, in colorful black and white imagery. There was never a railroad like the Western Pacific; there's never been a book like 72-82. Hard cover.

Southern Pacific's Heavy Pacific Locomotives
Stock #: KB10974
Author: Terry M. Johnson

List Price: $36.95
Karen's Price: $31.95

Introductory Offer!!

Covering Classes P-8, P-9, P-10, P-12, P-13 and P-14!

This is a serious locomotive book, not simply a photo album, in the tradition of Bob Church or Joe Strapac. Amply illustrated with detail photos, early-day roster shots, and lively action photography. Heavily researched and cross-checked. Author Terry Johnson begins his study with a discussion of Alco number 50,000—a 1912 demonstrator that pushed the envelope of modern passenger locomotive design. SP’s own heavy Pacific locomotives were part of the post-Harriman era, when SP spent millions replenishing and modernizing rolling stock worn out during World War I.

This book also addresses the former El Paso & Southwestern #3120-3129, which were added as coal burners in 1924 and continually refined to better fit them in with SP’s “home team.” A chapter is also devoted to the three smaller class P-6 locomotives rebuilt at Houston in 1937 to power the Texas & New Orleans’ streamliner Sunbeam and Hustler trains. They were fully modernized (as class P-14) in the face of dieselized competition between Houston and Dallas—on a shorter route. Class P-8, P-9 and P-10 heavy Pacifics were still powering Commute trains between San Jose and San Francisco as late as the summer of 1956—as illustrated by the dramatic, wrap-around Roger Cortani cover. This book is a major historical work at an affordable price, filled with large photos and numerous tables. Soft cover. more»
