Historical Atlas of the North American Railroad - Derek Hayes

From the first regional public railroad, the Baltimore and Ohio, with service beginning in 1830, to the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in 1869, great strides were made in rail technology.  In THE HISTORICAL ATLAS OF THE NORTH AMERICAN RAILROAD (Univ. of California, $39.95), Derek Hayes shows the progression of the railroad industry through a diverse representation of maps and photographs.  The history of the North American railroad is a rich one, full of triumphs and failures, and the maps, along with the text, graphically show the overwhelming difficulties that early engineers had to contend with.
