I purchased the book as a gift for a good friend who is interested in railroads and has several train sets he keeps on display all year round in his garage. He really is enjoying the book. I only thumbed through it myself, but the pictures are great and it covers a large array of the railroads over many years. It definitely looks like first class material about our railroads. Well done!

This book was truly amazing for the money! And with it being PRIME shipping was free so it was even better. It is packed with great info and pictures. Perfect for someone who is new to model railroading and seeking information and ideas and also for the person who just loves trains! Also history buffs will find enough here to love as well. I was impressed with the binding and artwork throughout the book even the insides of the covers! Just a great book!

I love this book. I have always had a fascination with trains and their history in America. This is a coffee table type book with fantastic pictures. We were so pleased that bought two more to give as gifts.

This book is a very concise review of American railroads. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! A lot of unknown facts about each major railroad and very interesting photographs as well.

I bought this for the railroad buff in the family for Christmas and he loves it! While he hasn't had a lot of time to sit down and read it, what he saw when he flipped through it at Christmas he really liked and was commenting on this and that. We had to take it away from him so he would open the rest of his gifts and spend time with the family! A must buy for the train lover in your family!

I ordered this book for my brother for Christmas. He is an engineer on a train and thought he would love this book. It is beautifully illustrated with wonderful photographs. It has a lot of stories, history, and facts. It is a very big and sturdy book and a wonderful addition for anyone that loves trains and railroads!
