The Great Northern Railway – A Pictorial Study by Charles & Dorothy Wood

Copyright 1979 Published by Pacific Fast Mail

Of all America’s transcontinental railroads, none was more colorful than the Great Northern. Today, many years after its merger in the sprawling Burlington Northern system, the “Big G” is still fondly remembered by railfans and model builders alike…and there is much to remember! The steam locomotives with their green jacketed boilers, the huge “Goat” heralds that adorned the tender sides and rolling stock, the bright vermillion cabooses and the beautiful orange and green paint scheme that typified the streamline era are just a few of the GN’s never-to-be-forgotten trademarks. This book is an excellent history of the Great Northern Railway, illustrated throughout with mostly black & white photos. 560 pages
