Railroads on Parade at the New York World's Fair was proof of the wide general interest in historical background of our railroads. Now comes this book, down that same alley (and illustrated with a good many photographs from the Fair). Breezy, informal, easy reading, this history of railroading in America, from the first train to today's streamlined monsters. There is a great deal about the men who made the railroads, the country over. And he ends with his presentation of the reasons why railroads are on the skids.
