His descriptions can be every bit as good as what I read in Train history mags!
The book was written recently (not in 1950). Responding to an earlier Amazon review Mr Brown added this:
"Primary objective was to leave a record of what it was like, while there are still a few of us around who experienced it."
Because Mr Brown only reviews trains he had the chance to ride much of U.S. gets left out:
The Upper Midwest (except for Omaha & Chicago), NY-Florida trains, Trains up the Pacific Coast etc.
He rode Seattle-Butte on the Milwaukee Road but went no further East (Great Northern & Northern Pacific Trains were not taken).
I bought this ebook not quite realizing it was a "Kindle Short" (45 pages). My first time
with this buying one.
Alas there's a typo or grammatical error on almost every page! The subject matter (I'm an armchair train 'foamer') allowed me to overlook those & continue on the journey with him. I hope he corrects these!
The other reviewer mentions photos. Later he says it was his error--there indeed are none.
I do recommend 2 websites as side by sides (Mr Brown could have added some links too now that he's got our interest!).
Timetableworld.com has an online copy of the 1952 Official Railway Guide
Also see Streamlinerschedules.com for more info and sched's for many of these trains.
Unfortunately I had come to the book's end by the time I was ready to curl up next to my computer's various Official Guides!
For the $1 price I'd buy it again.
