Reading Power in Color, Volume I opens with a sampling of Reading Company steam power from the 1940s to the end of regular service steam operation, including a brief look at the T1 4-8-4's in excursion service, then continues with a detailed examination of the railroad's interesting roster of first generation diesels from all four major builders.
This title is a good mix of color roster photographs and scenes of the locomotives at work.
