Trains of the 1970s

Trains of the 1970s

10.00

In the 1970s, problems that had plagued the railroad industry for decades came to a head. But as the curtain closed on an era, the railroads fought through adversity, surviving and setting the stage for a prosperous comeback in the 1980s.

Learn how, in that final, tumultuous decade of classic-era railroading, vintage diesels carried the torch one last time, the echoes of the great streamliners faded away, and a beleaguered yet resilient industry coped with crisis.

Trains of the 1970s is a 124-page special collectors issue examining the end of a railroading era. Its articles and features include:

All-new overview of events and trends of the decade by historian H. Roger Grant.

Search for the last operating Fairbanks-Morse C-Line diesels.

A Penn Central engineer's account of life on the road.

A report on North Western's fast Falcon piggyback trains.

And much more!
