n this visually glorious chronological history, prolific railroad historian and photographer Brian Solomon curates a selection of the world's most significant trains and locomotives over the last two centuries. Hop aboard to see trains and locomotives at work in scenic locations throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. Two centuries after iron behemoths first began appearing in Europe and North America, locomotives and trains continue to fascinate folks of all ages.
