J. David Ingles

Four Ways West Publications, 2017


This new book by nationally known editor and photographer J. David Ingles features over 450 color photographs, virtually all unpublished, from the mid-1950s past the 1964 Norfolk & Western merger. Coverage stretches from Buffalo to Kansas City with emphasis on Detroit, central Illinois, and St. Louis. Included is a thumbnail history of the Wabash Railroad, and photo galleries featuring Wabash depots, passenger cars, freight cars, plus an index and system map.

This book has a little bit of everything about the Wabash Railroad. Many photographs are of 'Covered Wagons', early switch engines, first-generation geeps and later power. Even a few photographs of late-era steam engines appear herein.
