Showcases late-era locomotives that combined innovative technology and new materials to create a final generation of refinement. Dramatic photos show Berkshires, Hudsons and Northerns at work, as well as massive articulateds at their finest. See New York Central's great steel fleet, Southern Pacific's cab-forward oil burners and Baltimore & Ohio's EM-1 war babies. Norfolk & Western continued to refine 4-8-4s and articulated types, even as the rest of America was buying diesels, and ran these well-oiled machines longer than any other line. Hardcover, 176 pages, 67 color and 213 black and white photos, 11 x 8 1/2".
