Author: C.J. Riley
Publisher: Michael Friedman Publishing Group, Inc.
The book covers all the main topics related to railroads and railroad terminology. It predominantly covers U.S. railroads, but there is plenty of coverage of Australian, Canadian, British, Chinese, African, and Russian railroads. It is organized like a typical encyclopedia in that topics are in alphabetical order, and one topic is not necessarily related to the next topic. In the back is an index of all the major diesel locomotives produced by the U.S. manufacturers. It is a very interesting and informative book, especially for someone wanting to learn about railroading in general.
