Copper Country Rail (Images of Rail: Michigan) ~ by George E. Anderson & Richard E. Taylor  Copper Country Rail (Images of Rail: Michigan)

"From the railroads' beginnings in the early 1870s to the complex rail network of the 1900s, the advance and decline of the copper industry in Michigan's Upper Peninsula was mirrored by the railroads that served it. With the abandonment in 1976 of the Houghton tracks of the Soo Line (formerly the Mineral Range, Duluth South Shore and Atlantic), Copper Country was once again without the railroad service that built it. This book seeks to tell this rich story of Copper Country railroads through a collection of pictures from various archival sources, including the authors' personal collections, the Houghton County Historical Society, Keweenaw County Historical Society, the Rudolf Maki collection, the Chuck Pomazal collection, the Michigan Technological University Van Pelt Library Archives, and the National Park Service archives.

Done Honest & True : Richard Steinheimer's Half Century of Rail Photography ~ by Richard Steinheimer

"...the Ansel Adams of railroad photography, a tribute that accurately reflects the genius of his work. Dramatic night scenes, haunting images of snowscapes and steam, and evocative portraits of men and machines are hallmarks of Steinheimer's extraordinary illustrations. His quest for adventure has led him to visually explore the Denver & Rio Grande Western, Santa Fe, Southern Pacific, Western Pacific, Union Pacific, Milwaukee Road, even mainline electric operation on the Pennsy." ~ Done Honest & True : Richard Steinheimer's Half Century of Rail Photography

Early Oregon Days    ~  by Edwin D. Culp
Early Oregon Days
"Railroad buffs in particular will find ample material here for their interests; much of Oregon's history was founded on those early tracks, and there are photos, timetables, routings, and advertising materials galore filling the pages of this book. The quality of the photos Mr. Culp has chosen is excellent, and their reproduction is sharp and clear; in addition, his information is fascinating and tells a great deal about the history of rail travel in Oregon from the time of the first Baldwin locomotive through the United Railways and Oregon Electric trains as well as the Portland interurban and streetcar service."  
~ Marlene Satter
