This is the first comprehensive, extensively illustrated account, of the growth and decline of American narrow gauge railroading. 'A treat to browse through ... An authoritative documentation of a long-gone era, the book brings to life ancient steam locomotives, railroads, and rolling stock that have mostly disappeared without trace.' New York Times Book Review 'Every so often, a book is published that deserves to be called a landmark ... American Narrow Gauge Railroads is probably the first of such calibre for the '90's.' Railfan and Railroad 'This book, which is certainly large in a physical sense, more importantly looms large with respect to the depth and quality of research and the careful and readable way in which the information is presented to the reader ... It should be hailed as a classic ... A book that belongs on the shelves of any person who cares about railroad history.' National Railway Bulletin 'This is an excellent work, and the author and publisher both deserve accolades.' Railroad History
