|Cleveland's Transit Vehicles |
Equipment and Technology
Toman & Hayes. From the beginnings of the horse car era in 1859, through the "sardine days" of World War II, and the ending of the surface electric era in 1963, Cleveland was crisscrossed with hundreds of miles of track and overhead wire guiding thousands of streetcars that hauled millions of passengers. This heavily illustrated volume examines the entire fleet, documenting each vehicle by model, number and route. You'll see trolleys, streetcars, trailer cars and service cars, trackless trolleys, and even those "new-fangled" trolley buses that took over in later years. 274 pages, 9"x11", 147 B&W photographs, maps and illustrations, hardcover.
|Bangor and Aroostook Stations and Structures |
Melvin & Melvin. This lavishly illustrated volume explores the numerous mainline and branch facilities of the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad in the 1950s. You'll enjoy photographs of the docks at Searsport, engine houses, coaling stations, bridges, interlocking towers, potato houses, depots, and much more. 144 pages, 384 B&W and color photographs and 2 maps, 11"x 8½", softcover.
