Historic North American Locomotives : An Illustrated Journey Paperback / softback


Historic North American Locomotives traces the historic development of North American locomotives from the early 1800s through today.

Considered a photographic book with the look and feel of fine art, 100 locomotives are profiled using descriptive text and richly detailed and colored photographic imagery.

A well-researched introduction provides the reader with a historical perspective.

The author/photographer includes high-quality photographs, created through various techniques that vividly capture the distinctive features of the locomotives.

From the 1805 Trevithick portable boiler to modern, high-speed locomotives such as the 2013 GE Genesis, the reader will enjoy viewing a variety of locomotives that are not usually shown together in one book.
