Description

The Southern Railway sheds light on the underappreciated yet significant innovation of this trailblazing company that was always at the top by almost any metric available. Implementing one of the first computer-driven car location systems, an early conversion to diesel-electric traction, groundbreaking regulatory accomplishments, and many other accomplishments are the reason Southern’s legacy influences the railroad industry to this day.

The most comprehensive book ever published about the Southern Railway, this volume is one railfans won’t want to miss. Readers will learn everything there is to know about the system’s traffic base, lines and terminals, and of course its trains.

This detailed, 256-page hardcover takes readers on a stunning visual tour of the railroad that “Served the South” through 380 color images, 12 detailed maps, and thoroughly researched text compiled with the help of over 75 photographers and leading historians on the railroad. Includes a foreword by Wick Moorman, who started his distinguished career with Southern.
