Backwoods Railroads of the West -A portfolio by Richard Steinheimer

Copyright 1963. Published by Kalmbach Publication

This book shows Richard Steinheimer’s brilliant black and white photos of Western railroads. The photos capture the whole canvas of western railroading: lumber and mining railways, short lines, branches, and the narrow gauge. There are steeple-cab motors breasting a 4 percent grade, Shay gears leaving their inimitable trail of lube oil down Sierra slopes, and bulky Baldwin hoods toting iron ore out of the Eagle Mountains. Join Steinheimer at trackside to enjoy the light rails, small locomotives and big scenery. 178 pages
