A breathtakingly exciting and informative book for those who know their trains. The run from Harmon to Albany on the New York Central is described in detail -- as seen from the engineer's cab. There are many illustrations picturing the gleaming tracks as they appear from the rab, too. There is information about signals, tunnels and tracks, and a second section dealing with the construction of the Diesel, with pictures, diagrams and illustrations in terms of simple concepts in physics. Not limited to local regional value.
