This title is by the author who at one time published his own books under the name of Great Northern Pacific Publications who specialized in Burlington Northern and BNSF Railway titles.
This title is all color photographs with more extensive text and maps than most Morning Sun titles. I prefer reading in addition to the photographs. This book is a little bit of a freight car color guide as there are many individual photographs of freight cars. The photos are not large-format, most pages will have small photographs often 4.5 x 2 inches in size.
