Chicago: America's Railroad Capital: The Illustrated History, 1836 to Today
Chicago: America's Railroad Capital: The Illustrated History, 1836
The first illustrated history of the people, machines, facilities, and operations that made Chicago the hub around which an entire continent's rail industry still revolves. In the mid-nineteenth century, Chicago's central location in the expanding nation helped establish it as the capital of the still-new North American railroad industry. As the United States expanded westward, new railroads and rail-related companies like Pullman established their headquarters in the Windy City, while eastern railroads found their natural western terminals there. Historically, railroads that tried to avoid Chicago failed. While the railroad industry has undergone dramatic changes over the course of its existence, little has changed regarding Chicago's status as the nation's railroad hub. In Chicago: America's Railroad Capital, longtime, prolific railroading author and photographer Brian Solomon - joined by a cast of respected rail journalists - examines this sprawling legacy of nearly 180 years, not only showing how the railroad has spurred the city's growth, but also highlighting the city's railroad workers throughout history, key players in the city and the industry, and Chicago's great interurban lines, fabulous passenger terminals, vast freight-processing facilities, and complex modern opera...

Classic Railroad Signals: Semaphores, Searchlights, and
Explore the history, quirks, and stories behind signals with gorgeous period and contemporary photography.Railroad signals are the link between the steam era and modern railroading. Designed for reliability and durability, signals can survive for decades. In fact, old semaphores installed during the early years of the twentieth century were still in service during the 1990s, protecting trains that were running with the latest modern diesels. Even searchlight-style signals that were the epitome of 1940s railroading continue to work today.Though standards were introduced in the early twentieth century, interpretation varied greatly among railroads, so even major railroads have individualized signals. Some, such as the Pennsylvania Railroad, were noted for their distinctive signaling hardware. Others lines became known for their peculiarities in practice.Classic Railroad Signals examines how different railroads developed specific hardware to serve their unique needs, in the process tracing the lineage of various types of hardware and highlighting how and where they were used. From nineteenth-century mechanical signals to disc signals, upper- and lower-quadrant semaphores, three-light electric signals, searchlight-style targets, positional lights, and color-position light hardware, a...

Making Trains Sound Like Trains: The Extraordinary Tale of the Locomotive Whistle in North America
Making Trains Sound Like Trains: The Extraordinary Tale
Follow the evolution of the sound of a train's horn - here, there, and everywhere.World War II was over and railroads were retiring war-weary steam locomotives in favor of shiny new diesel locomotives. Deane Ellsworth, a young train-crazy lad at the time, wondered if anyone anywhere cared about the steam locomotives' musical train whistles being replaced by the monotone horns. Indeed, a public accustomed to the melodious sounds of steam whistles registered concerns about these new horns as a growing source of noise, confusion, and accidents.As it happened, Ellsworth would go on to develop the K5LA and K3LA airhorns that are used on thousands of locomotives across North America today. In Making Trains Sound Like Trains, he relates the compelling tale - part history, part personal story - of the evolution of the train horn from the postwar period to today. Along the way, readers meet the colorful characters who found themselves involved in the story: loggers, poets, railroaders, industrialists, musicians, and more.Told for the first time, this detailed account combines an entertaining narrative, current and historical photography, and more than eighty field recordings. Railfans, historians, collectors, musicians, and those who smile at the sound of a distant train will not want to ...
