"Steam Trains" was written by Paul Price, published by Chartwell Books and copyrighted in 1978. The book is full of the history and technology of this early form of transportation but also wonderful photographs and of some of the earliest trains in America.
The First Steam Trains
Long-distance and Luxury
Competition - Speed and Service
North American Trains
The End Of Steam
The dust jacket flap reads:
"For a great many people, young and old, the era of steam trains is inseparably linked with romance, excitement and adventure. From modest beginnings there grew a transport system which transformed the world."
This vintage book is in very good condition. The dust jacket has minimal wear along the edges. The book itself has red cloth boards and is in very good condition with clean pages and a tight binding.
A really fun book and a great gift for any train-spotter, railroad enthusiast or transportation historian.
