It's not the future that was promised a half century ago. The days of carefree driving on the open road that were the promise of the future through the 1950s did not last very long. To this end we examine the realities of the US government's role in all transportation modes, and suggest that rail based transportation, both private and public has a better role to play in the future. more»

Train Wreck
Stock #: KB10732
Author: George Bibel

List Price: $29.95
Karen's Price: $27.95

Trains are massive—with some weighing 15,000 tons or more. When these metal monsters collide or go off the rails, their destructive power becomes clear. In this book, George Bibel presents riveting tales of trains gone wrong, the detective work of finding out why, and the safety improvements that were born of tragedy. Train Wreck details 17 crashes in which more than 200 people were killed. Readers follow investigators as they sift through the rubble and work with computerized event recorders to figure out what happened. Using a mix of eyewitness accounts and scientific explanations, Bibel draws us into a world of forensics and human drama. Train Wreck is a fascinating exploration of • runaway trains • bearing failures • metal fatigue • crash testing • collision dynamics • bad rails. Hard cover. more»
