John F. Strauss

Four Ways West, 2002

John Strauss brought us the history of GN's vast passenger operations in Great Northern Pictorial - Volumes Three Four and Five, and now he emphasizes freight services during Rocky's steam/electric and diesel eras. See the Fall grain rush, high speed Just-In-Time services, livestock transport, ore and taconite trains, the beginnings of unit train operations, the transition from GN to BN freight train services, and much more. This is the first time such an in-depth project focuses on the freight operations of a major western railroad.
