Passenger Trains hauled the most important freight—humans! Experience the heyday of passenger trains all over again. Photos, drawings and detailed captions document the huge variety of passenger cars in operations from the 1940s into the days of Amtrak. Includes information such as dimensions, passenger seating capacities, heating and air-conditioning systems, and the types of train services. Long-time railroad author Pat Dorin puts all the various types of passenger equipment and designs into perspective. Even model railroaders are sure to glean new ideas for their modeling projects.

Patrick C. Dorin has been interested in railroads since he was two. He worked for the railroad industry while going to college and for several years after and also has taught transportation at the university level. His interest in railroads has resulted in writing about railroad services and equipment, and has had 42 books published.
