James D. Dilts has written the first comprehensive study of the broad range of structures built in North America for the railroads during their heyday, from high-rise office buildings to beautiful resort hotels to lowly roundhouses and shops. Dilts delves into the personalities of the people who conceived these structures and examines the creative uses that have been found for many of them today. The railroads popularized such vogues in architecture as the Italianate style in the United States and the chateau style in Canada and pioneered the use of new materials (for example, steel) and methods of construction
