The North American Railroad
Its Origin, Evolution, And GeographyBook - 1995
This work offers an account of where and why rail lines were built in various regions and at different times across the North American continent. It tells why the United States and Canada developed distinctive forms of rail technology surprisingly different from those of Britain, where railroading originated, and explains how these developments convey with particular clarity the continent's unique historical geography.
