An Illustrated Guide to American Freight Train Equipment


An illustrated guide to the wide variety of freight car equipment of the railroads that have and continue to service North America, this book covers each type of freight car and the commodities it was designed to haul, as well as the equipment necessary to keep them all ‘on track.’ From Box Cars, Refrigerator Cars, Covered Hopper Cars, Open Top Hopper Cars, Ore Cars, Flat Cars, Tank Cars, Intermodal Cars, Work Cars & Maintenance of Way Equipment, and Cabooses, see the changes for each type through time, like the early Refrigerated Cars that required ice which have evolved into today’s much larger Mechanical Reefers. Great book for modelers.
