Steam Locomotive Coaling Stations and Diesel Locomotive Fueling Facilities ~ by Thomas W Dixon Jr
Steam Locomotive Coaling Stations and Diesel Locomotive Fueling Facilities
"Typically, coaling stations were huge towers of steel, concrete, or timber that held 50 to 1,000 tons of coal. This coal would eventually be dumped into steam locomotive tenders to be delivered across the country. The author uses reproduced material and articles that originally appeared in Railway Age and other trade magazines of the era, and advertisements from the three major builders of coaling stations: Fairbanks-Morse, Ogle Engineering and Roberts & Schaefer. Photographs show various types of coaling stations and fueling facilities, stand pipes and tanks, and cinder conveyors."

Trains of America : All-Color Railroad Photography Featuring the Late Steam and Early Diesel Era ~
 by Donald J. Heimburger, Don Heimburger 

"A large format celebration of steam, diesel, and turbine powered locomotives of some 90 railroads, their track, and trains. The diversity of scenes, generally good to fine color, and the large number of lines raises this from the run-of-the-mill fan books. It shares with those the neglect of interiors--of passenger cars and of locomotives. Some 400 photos--all in color."  ~ Trains of America

Train Simulator ~ by Microsoft ~ Train Simulator

"Train Simulator lets you experience the world's greatest trains in all their glory.  Six real-world rail lines are included from throughout history, including the Flying Scotsman line of 1920s England and the modern Odakyu Electric Rail commuter line in Tokyo.    Train aficionados can drive the train, run the rail yard, or dive in with the terrain editor and create the rail lines of their  dreams.  Or you can just sit back, relax, and admire the beautiful scenery and dreamy click-clack of the tracks."  --Andrew S. Bub - Note - This is computer based train simulation software and not a book.

Train Wrecks: A Pictorial History Of Accidents On The Main Line ~ by  Robert Reed
Train Wrecks: A Pictorial History Of Accidents On The Main Line

Passenger cars derailed, often with dire results. . . . .  one cannot help but find the photographs and public prints of the day interesting. When you pick up this wondrous book, you will have a hard time putting it down." 183 pages.   This book was published in various years by various publishers.  The cover pictured was by Schiffer Publishing in 1996.
