The Omaha Road: Chicago, St Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha  The Omaha Road: Chicago, St Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha 

"Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway was part and parcel of Chicago & North Western's midwest empire. As a country cousin, the Omaha Road functioned in concert with C&NW's main line across Wisconsin, and provided the northern reaches of the empire with access to Lake Superior ports before 1912 - a highly competitive exercise. The prize included the historic St. Croix Land Grant, which was sought by aggressive and prominent lumber barons.... "The Omaha Road had its origins in West Wisconsin Railway. Begun at Tomah, WI, it was at that time a springboard community to the Northwest after the Civil War. "The contemporary Omaha, at least in the steam era, ran modest trains and, in the end, carried pulpwood logs. There was the fast track through Augusta and Black River Falls, grounds for the TWIN CITIES 400 to perform at high speed."

Pacific Fruit Express ~ by Anthony W Thompson
Pacific Fruit Express, PFE
"Pacific Fruit Express was the world's largest owner and operator of refrigerator cars, and its history is not only an integral part of the story of western railroading, but also of the growth and development of western agriculture. From its conception by E. H. Harriman, through its dynamic and prosperous peak period from 1925 to 1955, and its decline thereafter, PFE, as it was known, is a rich and fascinating subject, touching on many aspects of Western history."

Pennsylvania Railroad: The 1940S-1950s ~ by Don Ball
Pennsylvania Railroad: The 1940S-1950s
"Ball and his cohorts have assembled an excellent collection of color photos of the PRR. Coverage is biased to the eastern end of the system, but this is not bad. There is an interesting story of the testing of early electric locomotives at the start of this book. A must for any true pennsy fan."

Portrait of the Alaska Railroad ~ by Kaylene Johnson & Roy Corral
Portrait of the Alaska Railroad
"In July 1923, President Warren G. Harding visited Alaska to drive in the "Golden Spike" commemorating the grand opening of the new, federally funded railroad linking Seward with Fairbanks. The Government Railroad had taken eight years and the influence of three U.S. presidents to complete. Shortly afterward, it was renamed the Alaska Railroad. In the eighty-plus years since then, America's northernmost railroad has remained a critical transportation link, a working train as well as a touring train that wends through some of the most fabulous country in the nation. Resplendent in blue and gold, the engines and cars of the Alaska Railroad remain disconnected from other rail lines, set apart on a track that travels north through the wilderness to a dead end near Fairbanks, and south to a dead end at the seaport of Seward. But, oh, what beauty lies between. In this lavishly illustrated and authoritative book, the Alaska Railroad rides in the spotlight. Through words and color-rich photos, Johnson and Corral offer an entertaining history of the railroad, the routes, the engines and railcars, the landscape and wildlife, and much more."
