Photo Cover. Near Fine. ----------large (oblong quarto) softcover, a Near Fine copy with a wee bit of very light rubbing, 128 pages, packed with b&w photographs, contents include: The FT-The Diesel that Did It; F Units in Production; Inside EMD's La Grange plant; F Units Hard at Work; F Units Today, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
Good. 128 pages. Previously owned (cover corners slightly creased, slight wear around cover edges, evidence of normal use etc) but a sound tight clean paperback. (The Golden Years of Railroading Series). F Units: The Diesels That Did It.
This is the other title mentioned in my earlier review of Classic Trains' book on E Unit Diesel Engines. As with the earlier title, this is a truly classic reference source! Sadly, there are no color illustrations, but that is what computer image searches are for! Get a copy of this title, if you can afford it, as it is out of print and VERY hard to find. As is the earlier title, it is softbound, about 90 pages, give or take, and very well bound. I do not think you will be disappointed with either of these fine books; As I have not been! Enjoy!...
