Only 5 left in stock (more on the way). The book covers steam locomotives from 1830 to 1900 so do not expect to see "Big Boys" but the first puny funny looking steam locomitives in USA. The late 19th century photographies are really good so this book is a treat for those looking for a nice illustrated book on American steam locomotives. 4 people found this helpful.

Early American Steam Locomotives - Reed Kinert. Chapter I. America’s first steam locomotive. The first American railroads were powered by horses, just as were the wagons upon the roads and the boats on the canals, and freight and passengers traveled over all three forms of transportation at the same leisurely pace of four miles an hour. But railroads, from the very first, held decided advantages over roads and canals.

Relive the early days of train travel with this exciting illustrated story of steam locomotion. Working with great love and skill from builders' specifications, old engravings, and contemporaneous accounts, author Reed Kinert recreates, in exacting detail, illustrations of the earliest locomotives—many of which were built and used before the advent of photography.More than 100 illustrations, many in color, portray the venerable "iron horses"—from the tiny Tom Thumb (which, early in its career, lost a race to a horse-drawn wagon) to vertical "teakettles" and "grasshoppers," and the streamlined "titans," outfitted with bells, whistles, and lights. Railroading enthusiasts, model rail hobbyists, and Americana buffs will be delighted with this expert pictorial-guided tour through the early days of the "iron horse."

This is a very good accounting of the first American made steam locomotives up to the turn of the century. If this is your interest this is a good book for it. There is a good collection of illustrations but they are a bit scattered throughout the text. I find it a fascinating read full of interesting tidbits. I like that it is available for Kindle and enjoy the author's witty documentary.

I love this book! The text is sufficiently non-technical to appeal to anyone interested in early American locomotives and the artwork is TREMENDOUS!

The book gives you a short history on early american steam locomotives. It doesn`t go into a lot of detail on any of them, but it`s a good introduction for anyone with at least a passing interest in trains or steam power.

Nice book If you like very old steam locomotives. Many drawings because the photography was discoverded after the beginings of railroad.

As many books by Dover Publishing this is a reprint of a book first published many years ago. The original was first published in 1962 but it looks like an book from the begining of the 20th century. The book is very nice with many drawings and photographies, unlike other illustrated books about steam locomotives this one also has a lot of text with the history of the locomotives depicted in the photos and drawings. The book covers steam locomotives from 1830 to 1900 so do not expect to see "Big Boys" but the first puny funny looking steam locomitives in USA. The late 19th century photographies are really good so this book is a treat for those looking for a nice illustrated book on American steam locomotives.
