In this authoritative history of the link between coal and railroading in the U.S., noted rail author Brian Solomon explores the railroads and hardware that have transported the coal that made America work. Brilliant period and contemporary photographs convey the drama of the enterprise: the very long—and very heavy—trains powering up mountain grades and thundering across barren prairies. Taking up topics ranging from the colorful but now-defunct “anthracite roads” of eastern Pennsylvania to today’s AC-traction diesels working Wyoming, Solomon reveals how for 150 years the unique demands of coal have driven railroad technology.
