When Electric Railway Engineering was originally published in 1915, the electric railroad was rapidly transforming the nation's cities and suburbs. How trolley cars, interurban cars, and electric freight locomotives operate, and how a railroad must be constructed and maintained to support them, is the subject of this wonderful historic book.
In its pages you'll find chapters about power systems, including overhead and third-rail, and topics such as operation of traction motors, controllers, resistor grids, and other hardware. Long considered a classic, this book has been out of print for nearly 100 years.
This new printing is an exact replica of the original, and features over 350 pages of text and numerous diagrams.
361 pages, 8x10, black and white interior, color covers.
