The Lakeside and Marblehead Railroad ~  by Dean K. Fick
The Lakeside and Marblehead Railroad
"Built in 1886, exactly 6.88 miles long, it was soon purchased by the large Kelley Island Lime & Transport Company, an acquisitive conglomeration that consolidated all of the area quarries into one huge operation by the middle 1890's.    In all, the L&M served the KIL&T Company and its home towns for 78 years–till 1964. And along the way, it utilized a rich variety of equipment: converted narrow gauge passenger cars, 0-6-0 switch engines, Shays, Fairbanks-Morse and McKeen gasoline motor cars, and first generation diesel switchers."  ~ Montevallo Historical Press

Little BookCliff Railway: The Life and Times of a Colorado Narrow Gauge ~ by Lyndon J. Lampert
Little BookCliff Railway: The Life and Times of a Colorado Narrow Gauge
"For nearly four decades, this unique little narrow gauge that traversed an eleven-mile stretch of high desert between Grand Junction, Colorado, and the Book Cliff coal mines, brought economic growth and stability to the Grand Junction area. ... It is the story of a Shay-powered, coal-hauling railroad, small enough to have nicknamed its little steam locomotives, yet ambitious enough to nearly succeed as one of the west's major transcontinental trunk lines."

Norfolk and Western Coal Cars: From 1881 to 1998 ~ by Andrew Dow
Norfolk and Western Coal Cars: From 1881 to 1998

"This fully illustrated history of N&W's hoppers and high-side gondolas begins in 1881 and continues through the present Norfolk & Southern operations. Not only is this study a superb technological history, it's also an ideal data file for modellers. The drawings are taken from a number of trade publications and company archives. Photographs from all eras show the cars being both built and used." ~ Amazon.com
