Railroading Around the World is a book of strikingly beautiful pictures collected by the author while inspecting the operations of thirty-four railroads in twenty-two countries. The text explains the pictures and gives a vivid account of the conditions and problems met and solved by railroad men everywhere. The many American devotees of the steam locomotive, which is rapidly disappearing in this country, will have a chance to see some of these engines in action in other countries where they are still in service. The book also should appeal to people both here and abroad who are interested in this great industry, as well as to rail fans, model enthusiasts and railroad men themselves.
