EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"J. Parker Lamb traces the evolution of the steam engine from the early 1700s through the early 1800s, when the first locomotives were sent to the United States from England. Lamb then shifts to the development of the American steam locomotive, first by numerous small builders and later, in the early twentieth century, by only three major enterprises and a handful of railroad company shops. Lamb reviews the steady progress of steam locomotive technology through its pinnacle during the 1930s, then discusses the reasons for the subsequent decline of this famous machine."--BOOK JACKET.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Ride the rails through the development and history of America's diesel-electric locomotives. Diesel-electric played a critical role in the industrialization of America. After WWII, diesels rapidly displaced the steam locomotive as the dominant source of motive power on the rails. This lavishly illustrated volume delivers detailed coverage of the development of the diesel including AC traction and the 800-horsepower beasts introduced in the mid 1990s. Solomon describes how diesels are operated and maintained today. Appendix lists where restored early diesels can be seen today.
