An overlooked piece of essential railroad equipment that had to be ready to go to work at a moment's notice, nearly all of America's railroads owned a wrecking crane or "big hook". In this color pictorial, this specialized equipment is seen working on large railroads like the Santa Fe or Union Pacific, or short line roads like the Alabama, Tennessee & Northern.

Includes 6 photographs of a Big Hook working a wreck of the Super Chief near Carrolton, MO in 1956. Many photographs are Big Hooks of Fallen Flag railroads.

Withers Publishing, softcover, 96 pages, standard portrait book 8 x 10 in., mostly color images. Very limited press run.
