KIRKUS REVIEW

For others of his kind, a lifelong devotee of railroads -- and in particular short lines and narrow gauge -- records the virtues of that vanishing local route. This is hobby riding which is conversational, sentimental, nostalgic, and sometimes entertaining..tripe made on the few surviving slow trains...the defense, some years back, of Tweets, the narrow gauge line in the Appalachians which was to be abandoned. Railroad, songs, customs, jokes...old time hotels and outing places en route...commuting and the passing of the and the Toonerville Trolley...fans and fan clubs...predicated on a like passion for these leisurely locomotives, this is pleasant occasional reading.
