Amtrak (MBI Railroad Color History). Nevertheless, this is a good book to catch up quickly on where CSX came from, how its power fleet evolved, and documents some of the recent history of its ancestors. GE and EMD Locomotives: The Illustrated History. I have learned quite a bit about the railroad and I am only at page 109 out of 157 pages. I can recommend this book.

Solomon's book tells the history of the Southern Pacific Railroad with a wealth of pictures-largely color pictures. However, this particular book in the series lacks a map of the entire Southern Pacific railway system at its height. Maps of this kind are universally included in the other books of the series and readers often find themselves referring to the map as they read the text of the particular book.

This pictorial history is only the second of its kind to trace the 30-plus-year history of Amtrak, beginning with a look at the rise and fall of privately run passenger train service followed by a look at Amtrak's infant stage from 1971 through 1976. Also examined is the period from 1976 to 1991, when Amtrak finally established an image, buying new equipment and refurbished old and grew its ridership despite a severely limited budget. Modern and period color photos illustrate such aspects of Amtrak as its motive power, including the high-speed Acela Express; its diverse array of rolling stock and equipment, famous long-distance trains past and present; short-haul corridors.Against all odds, the passenger train survives in the United States. The formation of Amtrak in 1971 heralded the end of privately operated passenger train service and ushered in an era of intercity train travel financed on a budget that has vacillated between the virtually non-existent and the barely adequate.- The only extant pictorial history of America's only passenger rail network- Amtrak ridership in 2001 topped 24 million, the highest in its history- Passenger rail travel may be a concept whose time has come in this country, considering the woeful state of the airline industry and the efforts of prominent belt way politicians like Tom Harkin to make Amtrak a viable national passenger railwayAbout the AuthorBrian Solomon has authored several books about railroads and motive power, including MBI's recent Modern Locomotives and GE Locomotives.

For someone who has many books on Amtrak, this one is a treat. All the pictures are in color. They are up-to-date and complement the text perfectly. The cover pages show an Amtrak map from 1972 and another for 2004. For a recent book there is still plenty of red hoods and candy stripes. The text is one of the more realistic treatments of Amtrak's history. Buy the book then buy a ticket! Printed in China.

The MBI railroad series was an excellently produced series that unfortunately is going out of print. They had a nice balance of history, quality pictures, and information about railroad equipment and operations. Brian Solomon, as usual, with his railroad books, did an excellent job.

I read this book to understand the history of Amtrak. Great information from the beginning but nothing big on the future aspect of the R.R.

Good information contained within about Amtrak. Enough information for the average model railroader to model the first 30 years or so of Amtrak's life. The pictures are very good.

One of the better books about Amtrak. Not only are the pictures well done, but the history and operational details are well done too. Any book about railroading written by Brian Solomon is going to be great and this is no different. If you enjoy Amtrak, passenger rail in general or just anything do do with railroad you will definitely enjoy this book.
