Train Wrecks: Pictorial History Of Accidents On The Main Line Book By


⭕ Train Wrecks: Pictorial History of Accidents on the Main Line Book by R.C. Reed

In 1853, 46 people were killed in a head-on collision between two trains of different lines running the same track at Secaucus, N.J., and the early safety record of railroads came to a sicking halt . . . only to suffer another crash three months later involving a Rhode Island excursion train. American railroading was expanding with tentative fingers and have them run over.

Here is the absorbing story of wrecks on the right-of-way--wrecks which brought on horror articles, songs and scare-sketches frightening travelers and even making for more accidents. One man, Cornelius Vanderbilt, who hated railroads, after almost dying in a wreck, lived to dominate the scene and control the New York Central.

The railroads survived, but grim echoes followed the first multiple casualties in the early railroad era, and alarms bells were set off with dire warnings which both curtailed and stimulated travel. In this definitive chronicle, Robert Reed presents a major historical work in the field of railroad accidents with a wealth of photographs and public prints of the day.

The book was published MCLMXVIII (1968) by Bonanza Books. This is a very unique book and would make a wonderful addition to collectors and enthusiasts. The book is in good to very good condition, and is waiting for a new home.
