Dorset Press, 1990. Hardcover with dust jacket. (ISBN 0-88029-353-5) Fully illustrated in color and black and white. Fascinating pictorial history including advertisements from the appropriate eras as well as fascinating photographs of the rail cars, from the outside as well as the excited passengers on the inside. There is a profound fascination, a longing for those days of magic and glory, when trains, the “Coast Daylight,” the “Broadway Limited,” and the “Super Chief,” were the last word in transportation. It was an era when airplanes were still unreliable and highway were torturous two-lane affairs unfit for a journey of more than hundred miles. It was the time of the gleaming Pullman car, the conductor and his call. It was the golden age of American rail travel.
