In addition to the 107 color illustrations of trains, this volume also offers full-color diagrams of routes, rail fastenings, crests, and symbols.The romantic presence of steam locomotives may be almost gone, but this guide vividly conveys the excitement of todays trains - their speed, power, bold colors, and electronic sophistication.
