Hear the train blow; a pictorial epic of America in the railroad age by Lucius Beebe( Book )

12 editions published between 1952 and 1958 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book follows a century and a quarter of railroading's coming of age, of its history, folklore, terrain, individuals, companies and systems: it takes the steam cars from their early competition with the canallers and the establishment of the Iron Dawn Horses, to the long way westward which found its end with the coming of the Diesels. The illustrations are visual evidence of how the railroad affected the national economy, population, character, the social pattern -- and even manners, in the mobility it offered, the standards it imposed, and the big business it developed. In the currently popular history-in-pictures medium, this keeps its headlights steadily focused on a subject whose appeal seems never-ending
