KIRKUS REVIEW

Fascinating data here about everything from depots to information centers to delight any youngster who's ever wondered about Grand Central's bustle, the Gare du Nord, London's ""crystal palaces"" or points between. Through a well ordered combination of historical anecdote and exposition we learn about Chicago's loop, Euston Grove which first coupled beauty with functionalism, and such adjuncts of railroad life as the Harvey restaurant chain. And after reading all about them there'll be a double thrill at the next ""All aboard!"".
