hardcover with jacket

William G. McClure and Jeremy F. Plant

Morning Sun Books, 2005


The Virginian was a challenge to photographers. It was far from most major urban areas, hard to follow by good roads in most places, and overshadowed in traffic density by the Norfolk & Western. Yet thanks to dedicated photographers a number of good Color photographs exist to make this a very interesting books. Electric railroad fans James P. Shuman and Sanford Goodrick had the photographic skills to record the Virginian electrics brilliantly. Others photographers include the tres amigos of the Pocahontas roads: Wally Johnson, August Thieme and H. Reid.

The book begins with a brief historic overview and roster, then moves on to the coal piers and then works its way west from Virginia into the rugged terrain of West Virginia. Along the way are many photographs of steam power, electric power, the Lima super-power, passenger trains and their equipment, the Train Masters and finally rolling stock and cabooses.

Morning Sun Books, hardcover with dust jacket, 128 pages, 11 x 8.5 x .5 in., all Color photographs with captions.
