Railways in the Netherlands : a brief history, 1834-1994 by Augustus J Veenendaal( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and Dutch and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book traces the origin, growth, decline, and resurrection of the railway system of the Netherlands from its beginnings to privatization in the 1990s, and places its history in the context of the political and socioeconomic development of the country. At first, the largely agrarian and mercantile Dutch society saw little use for such a novel system of transportation, thanks to a highly developed system of roads and waterways. However, the success of early English railways did not go unnoticed, and in 1834 a plan was developed for a railway from Amsterdam to the Prussian Ruhr area to replace the transportation system along the Rhine River. Although this initial plan was finally abandoned, other lines were opened in 1839. The technology was largely borrowed from England and Belgium, but from the outset Dutch engineers played an important role in the development of the network."--Flyleaf
The Saint Paul & Pacific Railroad : an empire in the making, 1862-1879 by Augustus J Veenendaal( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning in 1862 as a small carrier connecting St. Paul and Minneapolis with outlying towns, the Saint Paul & Pacific Railroad became the foundation of the vast rail system that would open the entire Northwest." "Written by leading railroad historian Augustus J. Veenendaal, Jr., this book examines the growth of the fledgling Saint Paul & Pacific as it struggled to lay track, meet the schedule, and make the payroll. The railway's leaders and workers took risks of injury and ruin during these years on the frontier, when everything except hardship was in short supply." "Enhanced by scores of rare photographs, this story of rails and steam portrays the men, the machines, and the enterprising business deals that built the early carrier. A study in American perseverance at its best, The Saint Paul & Pacific Railroad will appeal to all who are interested in Minnesota and the Northwest, business history, and the saga of railroading."--Jacket

Smoke over Oklahoma : the railroad photographs of Preston George by Preston George( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oklahoma was in the throes of the Great Depression when Preston George acquired a cheap Kodak folding camera and took his first photographs of steam locomotives. As depression gave way to world war, George kept taking pictures, now with a Graflex camera that could capture moving trains. In this first book devoted solely to George’s work, his black-and-white photographs constitute a striking visual documentary of steam-driven railroading in its brief but glorious heyday in the American Southwest. The pictures also form a remarkable artistic accomplishment in their own right. Prominent among the magnificent action images collected here are the engines that were George’s passion—steam locomotives pulling long freights or strings of gleaming passenger cars through open country. But along with the fireworks of the heavier steam engines slogging through the mountains near the Arkansas border on the Kansas City Southern or climbing Raton Pass in New Mexico on the Santa Fe, George’s photographs also record humbler fare, such as the short trains of the Frisco and Katy piloted by ancient light steamers, and the final years of that state’s interurban lines. Augustus J. Veenendaal Jr.’s brief history of railroads in the Sooner State puts these images into perspective, as does a reminiscence by George’s daughter Burnis on his life and his pursuit of railroad photography. With over 150 images and a wealth of historical and biographical information, this volume makes accessible to an audience beyond the most avid railfans the extent of Preston George's extraordinary achievement."

Marlborough : soldier and diplomat( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, has long been regarded as one of Britain 's greatest generals as well as a key English political figure in the first decade of the eighteenth century. The subject of numerous books in English, Marlborough has typically been seen only in terms of British political and military history. In this book, twelve leading specialists of the period broaden the perspective by assessing Marlborough in the wider and more diverse contexts of the European situation, the common soldier in the British army, the complementary activities of navies, the differing perspectives of the Austrians, Dutch, French, and Germans as well as in the context of the British popular press and the visual arts
