Historic Railroads of Nebraska takes a photographic journey down the tracks of the five major railroads and various short lines that helped Nebraska progress into a national center of agriculture and business. The trip begins with the formative years of Nebraska towns that were established along railroad lines in the 19th century. It then travels through the 20th century and documents the major changes and challenges that the railroad industry faced. Through more than 200 photographs, this book chronicles the era of streamlined passenger trains, rustic steam locomotives, and a bustling Union Station. The journey stops at railroad landmarks, the state's only railroad tunnel and the legendary North Platte Canteen.
