An Outstanding New Book About Railroading! Merchants Despatch, Roger C. Hinman


Merchants Despatch, formed in the mid-19th century as part of American Express, became an independent part of the New York Central family. Tis book traces its 150-year history to the year 2000, not only the long and complex corporate history, but also much informa- tion and many details about the design, construction, maintenance and operation of the vast car fleet. Toroughly researched and extensively documented, this is an authoritative book. Freight car enthusiasts will naturally welcome this work, but anyone interested in North American freight railroading will find it a valuable addition to their library.
