Railroads Past and Present

This series documents the influence of railroads on the growth and development of the United States, and highlights the important technology and notable events and individuals who were vital to the growth of the industry for almost 200 years. The series includes histories of individual railroad companies and of the railroads that serve a particular state or region. Stories of travel and books about art inspired by railroads are also featured. Inquiries may be addressed to Ashley Runyon, Acquisitions Editor, at asrunyon@iu.edu.
