I have never seen such complete coverage of railroads in any single document.(Richard B. Hasselman, Senior Vice-President of Operations, Conrail (retired))
This will be the finest railroad atlas ever published.(John C. Hudson, Northwestern University)
The book is first and foremost a geography book that can appeal to a wider audience than the railroad historian. If you know the earlier volumes, you know that this book will bring the full measure of satisfaction brought by those earlier volumes.(John Baesch The Portolan)
Carpenter continues his admirable effort to map American railroads in the immediate postwar era... Carpenter is to be commended for his efforts. The work is meticulous, the maps are clear and beautifully reproduced, and the resulting volume is a genuine research tool as opposed to a simple picture book.(Matthew G. Anderson Railroad History)
Surely one of the most appealingly eccentric publishing ventures of the year.(The New Yorker)
Proof that inspiration can result in something astounding... a treasure that any rail enthusiast or casual historian will enjoy.(Rail)
This book... belongs in the library of every serious rail historian.(Railfan and Railroad)
Carpenter has done an outstanding job showing the railroad world of 1946.(National Railway Bulletin)
A fine addition to any rail fan's library, perfect for a long winter evening.(Journal of Transport History)
Superb series... This atlas and its companions are excellent snapshots of railroading's 'classic era.'(Classic Trains) See all Product Description

Like : the fact that the author included portions of adjoining states, which is very helpful in areas such as around Chicago.
Looking at these maps gives one a true understanding of the importance of rail travel and commerce at the end of WW II
