Re: Railroad History

I find Ralph Fisher's book an enjoyable read as well. His experiences braking on the Boston and Maine were similar to those who worked on other carriers across the US and Canada. I recognise many similarities in this book with even my experiences working at CN in the running trades, and what I've learnt from my predecessors on the railway. Alas, how so much has changed in the rail industry since the timeframe of his book!! No more plain bearings, train order operation, cabeese, etc...toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
For non-railroaders interested in taking the next step, and operating trains filled out with their model STMFC's, this is an essential and educational read.
