Description: Although railroad engineering began in England, railroad builders on this side of the Atlantic developed uniquely American techniques and practices. American civil engineers were unsurpassed in their ability to build railroads over great distances and across high mountain passes, to erect great bridges, and to bore tunnels of prodigious length. Landmarks of the Iron Road tells the remarkable story of the building of a transportation system that civilized and settled America, supported an industrial revolution, and created a world power. Landmarks on the Iron Road is the first book to focus on the physical plant over which railroads operate—the roadbeds, tracks, bridges, and tunnels—subjects often taken for granted. It is a volume no rail fan or student of engineering should be without.
