A propos de cet article

A clean copy of this reprint edition of The Car Builder's Dictionary, originally published by The Railroad Gazette in 1888. There are no marks of any kind in the book. The dustjacket is quite partial, with large chips to the front panel, and quite a lot of the rear panel missing. What's there is now protected with a new mylar cover. Very Good+ binding / Poor dust jacket. N° de réf. du libraire 273008

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The Gregg reprint series of the Car Builder's Dictionaries brings back into print a classic source of authentic, detailed information about American railroading that will appeal to every type of rail enthusiast. Model builders will appreciate the wealth of precise details on dimensions of cars and parts, plus descriptions of materials and line drawings of thousands of parts. Everything from complete car diagrams down to carpet tacks is illustrated in a logical, easy-to-find arrangement. Railroad historians who want exact information will find it by referring to the dictionary section in front, which is cross-referenced to the 2,188 illustrations in the second section. Rail fans who merely enjoy learning more about American railroads will spend many hours entranced with both the fascinating dictionary section and the remarkable variety of illustrations - Westinghouse air brakes, wooden hand-car wheels, 20 pages of passenger car lamps, 24 pages of contemporary advertisements. Most important of all - a large part of the information in the 1888 Dictionary is not available in any current railroad literature. This is the only full and complete source, a wonderful addition to the practical, working books of a modeler or to the library of any kind of rail fan.
