The Great Northern Railway Through Time (America Through Time)
The Great Northern Railway Through Time (America Through
The Great Northern Railway Through Time takes us on a tour of the American Northwest―the last American frontier―from St. Paul, Minnesota, to Seattle, Washington. The Great Northern opened up the Dakotas, Montana, Idaho, the dramatic Cascade Mountains of Washington and the Continental Divide at Marias Pass. President James J. Hill intended the Great Northern to be a freight hauling road, but tourists riding on the GN's premier passenger train, The Empire Builder were delighted by the prairie, the farmland, the Big Sky Country, the mountains, and Glacier National Park. The G.N.'s reputation grew. Today, Amtrak's Empire Builder traverses the same territory. The Great Northern Railway Through Time presents photos taken over the course of seventy five years by photographers of the era. The author has provided ample photo captions pointing out features that have changed over the years and features that have stayed the same. The early photos are fresh―never before published. The more recent shots were made by twenty of America's finest rail enthusiast photographers.

Great Northern Railway - Route of the Empire
The Great Northern Railway (GN) main line stretched 1,700 miles from St. Paul, Minnesota, to Seattle, Washington, and was the most northern transcontinental railroad in the United States. In addition, GN branch lines stretched north from the Twin Cities to Superior and the Minnesota Iron Ore Range, and from Grand Forks, North Dakota, to Winnipeg, Manitoba; through Montana to Great Falls, Helena and Butte, and from Seattle to Vancouver, British Columbia. Other popular Great Northern passenger trains were the Badger-Gopher (St. Paul-Superior-Duluth), Dakotan (St. Paul-Minot), Cascadian (Seattle-Spokane), Red River (St. Paul-Grand Forks), Internationals (Seattle-Vancouver) and Winnipeg Limited (St. Paul-Winnipeg). Historic images include 4-4-0 steam locomotive William Crooks, the first steam locomotive to operate in Minnesota. Like other railroads, Great Northern purchased diesel locomotives from Electro-Motive Division consisting of the FT, F3, F7 and E7. Later models were U25B, U28B, U33C, SDP40, SDP45 and the first SD45 named “Hustle Muscle.” Also pictured are boxcab Z-1, Y-1 and W-1 electric locomotives.

The Texas Railroad: The Scandalous and Violent History of the International and Great Northern Railroad, 1866-1925
The Texas Railroad: The Scandalous and Violent History
The pioneer Union Pacific Railroad, a 1,085 mile-long segment of the nation's first transcontinental railway, is rightfully celebrated as a vital icon in American history. Yet, an equally long line that played a premier role in the development of the southwestern United States and established the country’s first rail connection with Mexico is no less important. Unlike the famous Union Pacific, this railroad has been forgotten – until now. Formed shortly after the Civil War, the International and Great Northern Railroad ran almost border to border across Texas and ultimately served most of the state’s population centers, including the great cities of Austin, Fort Worth, Laredo, Houston, San Antonio and Waco. With such a strategic and far-reaching franchise, the I&GN was proudly called “The Texas Railroad.” This book brings to life the engaging saga of “The Texas Railroad,” and recounts the hopes and dreams of its founders, the treachery and greed of its usurpers, the heart-wrenching emotions of its immigrant patrons, the longsuffering grit of its employees, and the heroism of its defenders. Started by Texans who hoped to build the longest railroad in the world, the International and Great Northern Railroad fell under the sway of a group of Wall Street bankers who dro...

History of the Northern Pacific Railroad (1883)
History of the Northern Pacific Railroad
Eugene Virgil Smalley (1841 - 1899) was a Civil War soldier, journalist, and historian. The Century Magazine commissioned him in 1882 to write a series of articles after taking a journey through the northern states from the Great Lakes to the Pacific. Following this he became the author of a History of the Northern Pacific Railroad, in 1883.The Northern Pacific Railway was a transcontinental railroad that operated across the northern tier of the western United States from Minnesota to the Pacific Coast. It was approved by Congress in 1864 and given nearly 40 million acres (160,000 km2) of land grants, which it used to raise money in Europe for construction. Construction began in 1870 and the main line opened all the way from the Great Lakes to the Pacific when former president Ulysses S. Grant drove in the final "golden spike" in western Montana on Sept. 8, 1883. The railroad had about 6800 miles of track and served a large area, including extensive trackage in the states of Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin. "A history of the Northern Pacific enterprise," says Mr. Smalley, "should be the history of a national movement to find an outlet to the western sea. No other railroad enterprise ever enlisted among its stockholders so numerous and w...

The White Cascade: The Great Northern Railway Disaster and America's Deadliest Avalanche
The White Cascade: The Great Northern Railway Disaster
"Krist does wonders . . . [He] describes the frantic rescue efforts . . . and the malevolent, unending storm. In a thrilling, climactic chapter, he conjures forth the avalanche."―The New York TimesIn February 1910, a monstrous, record-breaking blizzard hit the Northwest. Nowhere was the danger more terrifying than near a tiny town called Wellington, perched high in the Cascade Mountains, where a desperate situation evolved: two trainloads of cold, hungry passengers and their crews found themselves marooned. For days, an army of the Great Northern Railroad's most dedicated men worked to rescue the trains, but just when escape seemed possible, the unthinkable occurred―a colossal avalanche tumbled down, sweeping the trains over the steep slope and down the mountainside. Centered on the astonishing spectacle of our nation's deadliest avalanche, The White Cascade is the masterfully told story of a never-before-documented tragedy.

The Corn Belt Route: A History of the Chicago Great Western Railroad Company (Railroads in America)
The Corn Belt Route: A History of the
The Chicago Great Western Railroad was a spunky midwestern carrier that contributed mightily to the transportation industry. The 1,500-mile CGW, built by the iconoclastic and ambitious A. B. Stickney, proved to be exceptionally innovative as it developed new ways to compete with larger railroads. Pitted against tough, determined competitors, the CGW during its eighty-five years made innovations that changed the history of American transportation. Among the pioneering activities for which the Great Western is remembered are the early use of internal combustion equipment, the hauling of truck trailers atop flatcars ("piggy-backs"), and the use of extremely long freight trains. Indeed, much of the railroad's past supports the notion that smaller, less-established carriers like the CGW frequently stimulated changes in industry thinking and practices. In spite of its innovations, the path of the Great Western, sometimes called the "Great Weedy," did not always run smoothly. In the 1930s, John W. Barriger III quipped, "The Chicago Great Western is a mountain railroad in a prairie country serving a traffic vacuum." Such a negative assessment was not uncommon for this Granger pike, which in fact climbed some steep grades and owned a long tunnel. And while the road did not operate in a "t...
