Southern Railway

By Tom Murray   Southern Railway

This illustrated account of the venerable Southern is both the story of the railroad’s 88-year tenure as a transportation force in the region and a fascinating chapter of Southern history. The Southern Railway—the first major U. S. railroad to completely convert to diesel—eventually incorporated some 150 individual predecessor railroads into its system. Wonderful archival photos capture the railway’s motive power and rolling stock against the region’s cityscapes and scenic countryside. The book also includes system maps, period ads and timetables. Hardbound, 160 pages, 106 color and 51 b/w photos, 8½ x 11".
