Backwoods railroads of the West; a portfolio by Richard Steinheimer( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this brilliant portfolio the photographic craftsmanship of Richard Steinheimer is complemented by sheet-fed gravure printing as the camera roams far and lingers long at the trackside of lumber and mining roads, short lines, branches, and--of course--the narrow gauge. In 204 never-before-published pictures, Steinheimer reviews The West in terms of steeple-cab motors breasting 4 per cent, Shay gears leaving their inimitable trail of lube oil down Sierra slopes, and bulky Baldwin hoods troting iron ore out of the Eagle Mountains. In Backwoods Railroads of the West, this acclaimed illustrator strays far from high iron to commit to film the way of life of minority railroading. For Steinheimer a Mallet tanker at speed is a rare breed--and so is the man entrusted with a Shay. Herein he records both man and machine in native habitat in a volume to stir the soul of anyone enamored of light rail and small locomotives and big scenery--Jacket

The Iron road( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using archival film and photographs; interviews with historians, writers, Native Americans, and railroad representatives; and new cinematography, this film documents the building of the first transcontinental railroad. It took 20,000 men (10,000 of whom were Chinese immigrants) 6 years to build 1,700 miles of track stretching from Omaha to Sacramento. The Central Pacific founded by Theodore Judah and funded by Sacramento businessmen Charley Crocker, Mark Hopkins, Leland Stanford, and Collis Huntington worked from the West; and the Union Pacific run by Thomas C. Durant and civil engineer Greenville Dodge worked from the East. The completion of the railroad reduced the cross-country trip from several months to just 9 1/2 days, united the state of California with the rest of the U.S., and brought about a wave of western expansion
