Thanks for pointing this scan out, Bob.  I noticed that the physical book they scanned was through the courtesy of funding by James J. Hill as mentioned on the first flyleaf.  Good old Jim Hill still educating us about railroading!

The NMRA reprinted Freight Terminals & Trains several years ago. Copies are still available.

  Thanks Bob for posting this link. 

Gems like this provide enjoyable reading and can be drawn upon again and again. 

Jerry Masters, a friend I have often researched with at the MNHS, who is also  a civil engineer and former railroad employee of the NP, later BN said that " a good mans idea on one railroad is a good idea on any mans railroad. An oak 12 x 12 timber has the same load characteristics on one railroad as it does on another. The same with a truss or a beam." 

Books like this are examples of people who felt the same way.           
                                                                                                                          again, thank you.                                                             Jim Dick - Roseville, MN

I've downloaded more than 10,000 books, magazines, periodicals, and catalogs from GB and other digitized libraries. Why would I bother to print them all when they're all digitized, searchable, and indexed?

Because not all of them are - and, for some of us, paper copy is easier to handle. Your choice.
