My review of the book:

http://www.robertjohndavis.com/blog/?p=382

Anthracite experts will cringe at parts, but it is pretty good overall and you won't get these pictures anywhere else.

This is written better than most of the publishers books. Usually I think of these as the Playboy of trains - look at the pictures, ignore the text. Text is OK in this one.

Rob
