HIGHBALL: Pageant of Trains by Lucius Beebe

HIGHBALL: Pageant of Trains

Email this review


Companion volume to his prose-photograph books, High Iron, Highliners and Trains in Transition. More than 170 photographs largely taken by the author. Here are further passages about railroads, tracks, motive power, rolling stock; incidental intelligence on little railroads, on the changes and improvements the war has brought, on the Pacific type engine versus the Pennsy K-4's, on the history of Colorado railroading, on crummies and cabooses. Hobby-riding, seriously taken -- for railroad fans.
