Publisher's Description
Jim Shaughnessy is a revered name among railway photographers. This collection, the best of his work over a forty-year career, features photographs taken between 1946 and 1988, with an emphasis on the American railroad culture of the fifties and sixties. Jeff Brouws—a railway authority and photo historian—has contributed a biographical essay that traces Shaughnessy’s beginnings photographing steam locomotives in Troy, New York, to his documentation of the dramatic steam-to-diesel transition, with an emphasis on the northeastern United States and Canada, where the concentration of railway action and often deep snow resulted in beautiful and unusual images.

Not just a compendium of photographs of locomotives, this book covers the whole railroad world—the sheds, tunnels, viaducts, station yards and more. It is a wonderful document of what is arguably railroading’s most compelling era.
