For as long as locomotives have been the stars of North American railroads, rolling stock has trundled and raced along behind, carrying raw materials, finished goods, passengers. Illustrated with more than 250 photographs, "Railroad Rolling Stock" traces the evolution of various forms of rolling stock throughout the history of railroading. Each chapter features a specific type: boxcars, gondolas, hoppers, tankcars, flatcars, auto racks, intermodal rolling stock, passenger equipment, venerable caboose, even maintenance of way equipment. The photographs throughout reflect the grand geographical and technical breadth of North America, and are accompanied by detailed captions identifying the rolling stock pictured and explaining their role in history from the 'Golden Age' to the present. Easy to carry by hand, in a pocket, this is an invaluable reference guide for any real enthusiast, and will be particularly welcomed by modellers and model-makers.
