Steam Locomotives of the B&O Railroad - Photo Archive

De Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (B&O), de eerste spoorweg in de Verenigde Staten, werd opgericht in 1827. Drie jaar later nam de B&O de eerste 20 km rails tussen Baltimore en Ellicott's Mills in gebruik. Tegen 1838 vervoerde de maatschappij al post tussen Baltimore en Washington D.C.
Dit Iconografix fotoboek kijkt terug op de stoomlocomotieven die Amerika groot hebben gemaakt, van de start tot het einde van het stoomtijdperk. Opgenomen zijn uiteenlopende typen stoomlocomotieven, beginnend bij kleine 4-6-0's uit de tijd van de Amerikaanse Burgeroorlog tot de eerste gestroomlijnde locomotief.

Mooie collectie van 121 groot-formaat archieffoto's van hoge kwaliteit. Compleet met gedetailleerde ondertitels en een beknopt overzicht van de geschiedenis. Door de authentieke opnamen is dit deel uit de serie "Iconografix Photo Archive" een rijke bron van informatie over Amerikaanse stoomlocomotieven.
