The Twilight Of Steam

It’s one of the finest railroad books that I’ve ever come across & I’ll have a chance to interview the author, my friend, Brian Solomon, this afternoon (Wednesday),at 4:30 on the Puffman Show. My name is Puff & I’m a Railway Buff. “The Twilight of Steam: Great Photography from the Last Days of Steam Locomotives in America” is a compelling beautiful hardcover coffee table presentation written & put together by Brian Solomon & available from Voyageur Press. With well over 40 books to his credit, Brian is one of today’s most accomplished & prolific young rail historians. He divides his time between western Massachusetts & Dublin, Ireland with a long ago STOP in Glendive, Montana! Steam locomotives may be mostly gone, but they’re not forgotten. In “The Twilight of Steam”, acclaimed rail author Brian Solomon has selected some of the BEST black-and-white photography from great rail photographers of the postwar era. The railroad buff will be fascinated with gorgeous large-format images showing iconic steam locomotives at work & at rest all over the United States & Canada at the time steam was fading from the rail scene. From high plains to mountain passes, from city stations to scrapyards, these evocative images capture a historic era of railroading. Mr. Solomon’s selections are prefaced by the recollections of photographers, while detailed captions provide information about the locomotives & the scenes pictured. THIS is an essential addition to the bookshelf of any serious rail fan. Check out the book at: & then tune in this afternoon when I have the opportunity to talk “Railroading…STEAM Railroading” with Brian Solomon. And of course no Puffman interview with Brian wouldn’t be complete without Brian recounting the saga of when he got abandoned on the mainline of the Northern Pacific down in Glendive when he was a kid! Brian thought it was “Curtains” for sure. See you later this afternoon. Until then….ALL ABOARDDDDDDDDD…………
