This elegant volume celebrates the 75th anniversary of Trains magazine, the premier publication in its field.

Drawing on the Trains magazine archive of more than 120,000 images, Jeff Brouws and Wendy Burton have confined their selections for this book to the steam era, selecting photographs that immerse us in the period of the first half of the twentieth century.

Seen here are legendary locomotives from famous railways along with images of the lost world of the steam short line, as well as intimate details of railway life: gallant locomotive engineers, gritty roundhouse workers and elegantly uniformed conductors. Each photograph is accompanied by an extended caption by Kevin P. Keefe, who has also written an introductory essay about the history of the magazine, its founder and editor, and their impact on the field of train photography.
