Description by OLDIES.com:
In 1869 the east and west coasts of the USA were at last linked by rail, launching what is now known as "the golden age of the railroad." Within twenty years several other major transcontinental routes has been opened, and the railroad companies, which had invested countless millions of dollars, needed to attract both freight and passengers. From then on a crossing to the Pacific by train, over wide plains, high deserts, and the rugged heights of mountain ranges, was one of the most exciting adventures that any traveler could imagine. This exciting volume, packed with rare railroadiana and expertly written text brings those wonderful days back to life!
