Colorado Rail Annual No. 32. Here are three unusual “Colorado Railroads Without Mountains.” The 15-mile San Luis Central has faithfully served a rich agricultural district in the San Luis Valley for over a century, owning only three locomotives during its lifetime. Having outlived many more famous lines, its full history is presented here for the first time by John Gruber. Union Pacific’s Greeley branch tapped a rich sugar beet growing area, and its fortunes rose and fell along with the once important Colorado sugar industry. Historian Kenton Forrest gives a complete account of the railroad line and the area it served for many years. The Arkansas Valley Railway is famous for being the first Colorado railroad abandonment. Author Robert W. McLeod provides a detailed history of the important role it played at the dawn of the railroad era in the West. Hardbound, 8.5″ x 11″, 216 pages.

Part #: CEN-CLASSICRAILROADSIGNALS
Classic Railroad Signals -- Hardcover, 160 Pages. Explore the history, quirks, and stories behind signals with gorgeous period and contemporary photography. Railroad signals are the link between the steam era and modern railroading. Designed for reliability and durability, signals can survive for decades. In fact, old semaphores installed during the early years of the twentieth century were still in service during the 1990s, protecting trains that were running with the latest modern diesels. Even searchlight-style signals that were the epitome of 1940s railroading continue to work today. Though standards were introduced in the early twentieth century, interpretation varied greatly among railroads, so even major railroads have individualized signals. Some, such as the Pennsylvania Railroad, were noted for their distinctive signaling hardware. Others lines became known for their peculiarities in practice. Classic Railroad Signals examines how different railroads developed specific hardware to serve their unique needs, in the process tracing the lineage of various types of hardware and highlighting how and where they were used. From nineteenth-century mechanical signals to disc signals, upper- and lower-quadrant semaphores, three-light electric signals, searchlight-style targets, positional lights, and color-position light hardware, author Brian Solomon covers nearly every conceivable piece of North American signaling hardware, even the virtually extinct wig wag that was once standard in California and Wisconsin. Gorgeous period and contemporary photography shows signals and trains from around North America. Classic Railroad Signals should be next to Railroad Signaling on every railroad fan's bookshelf.

Chicago Stations & Trains Photo Archive. No other American city had such a fascinating group of railroad passenger stations as Chicago. This book highlights Chicago's six major railroad stations and the trains that served them. Included are Dearborn Station, Grand Central Station, Central Station, La Salle Street Station, North Western Station, and Union Station. During the heyday of passenger trains, Chicago was the undisputed rail center of the United States and its railroad stations were the gates to everywhere. Chicago's railroad stations featured superb architecture with marble floors and staircases, while restaurants, newsstands and shops filled the concourse areas. Steel latticework beams helped support glass-domed roofs and public address systems echoed train information throughout the high-ceiling stations. Huge station clocks loomed above the brass and neon train bulletin boards that listed "On Time" trains. Beyond the boarding gates, the constant parade of trains sounded with clanging bells and rumbling steel wheels. Historic photographs feature name trains like Super Chief, Capitol Limited, 20th Century Limited, Broadway Limited, California Zephyr, Hiawatha, 400, and City of Denver. Included are maps, station drawings, timetables and promotional advertising.

Chicago America's Railroad Capitol: The Illustrated History 1836 to Today --The first illustrated history of the people, machines, facilities, and operations that made Chicago the hub around which an entire continent's rail industry still revolves. In the mid-nineteenth century, Chicago's central location in the expanding nation helped establish it as the capital of the still-new North American railroad industry. As the United States expanded westward, new railroads and rail-related companies like Pullman established their headquarters in the Windy City, while eastern railroads found their natural western terminals there. Historically, railroads that tried to avoid Chicago failed. While the railroad industry has undergone dramatic changes over the course of its existence, little has changed regarding Chicago's status as the nation's railroad hub. In Chicago: America's Railroad Capital, longtime, prolific railroading author and photographer Brian Solomon - joined by a cast of respected rail journalists - examines this sprawling legacy of nearly 180 years, not only showing how the railroad has spurred the city's growth, but also highlighting the city's railroad workers throughout history, key players in the city and the industry, and Chicago's great interurban lines, fabulous passenger terminals, vast freight-processing facilities, and complex modern operations. Illustrated with historical and modern photography and specially commissioned maps, Chicago: America's Railroad Capital also helps readers understand how Chicago has operated - and continues to operate - as the center of a nationwide industry that is an essential cog in the country's commerce.

The H-8 class Allegheny was C&O's ultimate Super Power locomotive and has been treated in countless articles and books, however, nothing has been in print on this important locomotive for 20 years. This book contains material originally researched by Gene Huddleston and many other prominent locomotive and C&O historians. Additional material has been added and the resulting text gives the reader a complete and thorough understanding of this iconic C&O engine. Over 100 photographs include many which have never been published in any venue before. Also included are drawings and tables which help tell the story of the fabulous years from 1942 to 1956 when these giants were the backbone of C&O's motive power fleet. The Allegheny has been the center of controversy and contention as to its place in the history of steam locomotive development and continues to be of interest to railfans, modelers, and historians interested in the history of technology.

Part #: CEN-BURLINGTONROUTEINFOCUS
Burlington Route in Focus. Railroads have a unique impact on the places we live. They stir commerce and profoundly impact business, but most importantly, railroads shape communities. The management of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad (CB&Q), popularly known as the "Burlington Route," was acutely aware of the impact that their railroad had on the region it served. In 1948, the CB&Q commissioned professional photojournalists Russell Lee and Esther Bubley to document the influence of the Burlington Route on the communities it traversed. "This title is a study of 'Granger Country: A Pictorial Social History of the Burlington Railroad', a company-sponsored publication from 1949 that originally included a small portion of the hundreds of images produced by Lee and Bubley for the CB&Q. This new book from The Garbely Publishing Company features some of their best black and white photography from that project. The entire Granger Country collection now resides at the Newberry Library in Chicago, which has graciously allowed authors Reisdorff and Bartels to take readers on a journey around the post-World War II Burlington system by telling the stories behind the images. "The Lee and Bubley photographs illustrate the people, places and machines that were intrinsic to the CB&Q of the 1940s. They show an era when steam power still chuffed across the Plains, when "train time" was still the epoch of any community's day. See how new Zephyr streamliners and diesel-electric locomotives were then securing their foothold on the Burlington Route, and take a ride Everywhere West through Granger Country."
