Reminders of a time when our nation rolled on steel wheels
America’s Great Railroad Stations
By Roger Strauss III
Hardcover, 236 pages ($40)
Once bustling, hustling hubs of commerce and travel, America’s remaining railroad depots are today revered as architectural icons and links to a time when our nation rolled on steel wheels. This gorgeous coffee-table collection of more than 250 full-color photos and dozens of vintage black-and-white images presents a stately, coast-to-coast reflection on these cathedrals of transportation and community, many of which have been meticulously restored to the grandeurs of yesteryear.
