Great American Scenic Railroads
By Michael Swift  


Great American Scenic Railroads

This book does not pretend to be a comprehensive account of each of the scenic railroads in the United States, but it provides a history of many of the most significant. Many are steam operated, but others, traversing some of the most stunning scenery that the country can offer, are diesel-operated. There are lines in most parts of the country and many offer a wide range of themed special or dining services. In an era when we should be increasingly conscious of our impact on the environment, these scenic railroads have much to offer in allowing access to the countryside without destroying it. Hardcover, 12 ¼ x 9 ¼", 192 pages, 160 full color photos.
