The Effects of Railroads on the Emergence of Operational Art During the American Civil War,
The American Civil War has been called the first modern war. Despite the multiple books on the subject and historical study dedicated to the Civil War, little has been written on the impact of the railroad on the emergence of operational art. Moreover, even less has been written about the management of the railroad itself being a contributing factor to the successful application of the railroad to support operational art. The general picture most historians have is that the railroads were a tool to be used to support operations. But without the proper management of the railroads they would not have been able to support the war effort. The Union was able to apply operational art to the use of railroads consistently throughout the war by doing two things. First, they put the management of the railroads under one supervisor and, secondly, they consistently paid the railroads for their services. Conversely, the Confederates never consolidated management of the railroads and did not consistently pay the railroads for their use, ultimately leading to their downfall. This book examines how both sides in the Civil War utilized railroads, how this affected the emergence of operational art, and how the proper management of the railroads supported the demands that the Army placed upon them....

Why Am I Still Alive?: And Other Railway Short
How fortunate have I been. For over 40 years of working in the rail environment, death has evaded me on so many occasions. Working around and amongst fast moving passenger and freight trains was like swimming in a shark infested pool. Danger is there at all times. These true stories tell of how close I came to being a casualty on many occasions when face to face with moving trains. Working in various roles over many years to keep the trains running has brought some amazing experiences and situations that would certainly not occur today. This book also contains a series of short stories that explain the 'behind the scenes' activities I have been involved in to keep the rail system working. Reading this book will provide some delightful insights into the way we managed the rail infrastructure so the trains could meet their timetables back then.

The Classic Railway Signal Tower - New Haven Railroad
The S.S.44 / Berk Signal Tower was built in 1896 and remained in continuous service until 1984, a period of 88 years. This signal tower controlled a strategic interlocking on the busy four-track signaled and electrified New Haven Line that is now part of the Northeast Corridor. This complex interlocking included the junction with the non-signaled Danbury-Pittsfield branch line and also included the four-track swing bridge over the Norwalk River. This book is about the New Haven, Penn Central and successor railroads, and the role that S.S.44 / Berk and the other signal towers played in train operations, dispatching and control. The twenty (20) chapters in the book are about trains, history, technology, signaling, rail operations (including operating rules and procedures), people, and much more. The book is fully illustrated with approximately 76 color photos, 36 black and white photos, and 30 other graphics. Great train photos, including many by well-known New Haven Railroad photographer T. J. Donahue.

Gold Rush Railroad [VHS]
The White Pass and Yukon Railroad made its inaugural run between Skagway, Alaska and Whitehorse, Yukon July 29, 1900. Close to a century later it still thunders through the spectacular White Pass--alongside the Trail of '98--the route to the Klondike Goldfields. For more than eighty years the railroad provided year-round service on its 110 mile route. It survived the boom and bust of the mining economy, two world wars and some forty feet of snow Alaskan winters could dump on White Pass summit. The constant roar of the steam powered rotary snowplow fleet was a familiar sound throughout the long winters. Today a summer excursion service carries record numbers of passengers along the pass. Now, through a wealth of archive film and broadcast video, we relive the highlights of this narrow-gauge survivor--a recent high speed winter run on the gleaming Mikado Class Steam Locomotive. Enjoy the power and sight of the Rotary Fleet working at 40 below zero, travel in comfort on the original General Electric Class 90 diesels and marvel at the massive trains pulled by the Alcos.
