Thomas W. Dixon, Jr.
This book will be ideal for modelers interested in late steam locomotive and early diesel era engine terminals. It reproduces material originally contained in articles appearing in railway age and other trade magazines of the time, combined with many photos of various types of coaling and fueling facilities. Material is also gleaned from Fairbanks-Morse catalogs and ads of Ogle Engineering and Roberts & Schaefer, the three major builders of coaling stations.
