This title combines three complementary titles on popular subject in one attractive gift package. Railroads have been part of the American way of life since 1828 when America's first common-carrier railroad, the Baltimore and Ohio, laid its first rail. Since then, hundreds and hundreds of railroad companies have been born. "The Classic American Railroads" gift set chronicles 44 of America and Canada's most loved railroads from the golden age. Most have disappeared or merged into the super railroads of today, but these "fallen flags" are fondly remembered. Here together in one boxed set are three railroad classics: "Classic American Railroad", "More Classic American Railroads", and "Classic American Railroads, Volume III."
