Landmarks on the Iron Road : Two Centuries of North American Railroad Engineering Paperback
Part of the Railroads Past and Present series
American civil engineers were unsurpassed in their ability to build railroads over great distances and across high mountain passes, to erect great bridges, or to bore tunnels of prodigious length.
This is a remarkable story of the application of engineering to the building of a transportation system that civilized and settled America, and then supported an industrial revolution and created a world power.
