In 1905, the Long Island Rail Road began electric operations with a small fleet of multiple unit (MU) passenger cars. This title features everything from MP41 Gibbs cars and the fleet of MP54 cars (including all classes) to the LIRR's iconic double-decker fleet built after WWII. A must-have title for LIRR fans.
Continues the history of the commuter road's vast fleet of Multiple Unit (MU) cars, beginning in 1953 with 20 cars purchased by William Wyer, the railroad's trustee. It then features the Pullman-Standard car fleets of 1955 and 1963 as well as cars purchased by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority starting in 1968, first with the M1 fleet of Metropolitans, then M3's, M7's and finally the M9's of 2020. Also covered are the railroad's two sets of gas turbine/electrics and Budd Rail Diesel Cars (RDC's).
Life-long railfan-photographer Matt Herson's latest book--on the Long Island Rail Road--takes a colorful and in-depth look at three decades of operation by "The Route of the Dashing Commuter." With captions written by long-time LIRR railfan, historian Mike Boland, this fascinating collection of photos captures the nation's busiest passenger railroad in all its glory, from its varied roster of passenger cars, MU's, motive power, cabooses, freight equipment and much more . . . even tugboats, RPO cars and its MOW fleet of cars.
This volume finds our young railfan and author chasing operations on NYC, NH, and LIRR. Both everyday railroading and special excursions feature in plenty of intriguing scenes.
