There are quite a few winter photographs in this title. The winter landscape contrasts nicely with the colorful locomotives. You will see them painted in Maine Central Harvest Yellow, some maroon units, Guilford gray and former Rock Island U25B's in blue and white. Bright, sunny days are few and far between and many photographs show Maine's weather.
In this new book from Railroad Explorer, author George Pitarys takes us back in time for an up close and personal look at his life on one of North America's favorite railroads - the Maine Central.
As a Maine Central Railroad career railroader and accomplished railroad photographer, George has captured the entire Maine Central on film like few others have. In this new book he shares his personal experiences both from trackside and from the dispatcher's desk.
The story of the Maine Central in the glory years of the 70s, 80s and into the 90s has never been told quite like this. It's a book you won't want to miss!
