Hardcover, 144 pages, Color photographs with captions.
Being from the Twin Cities (aka "The Cities"), this book will have photographs from my favorite railroads and locations. With the many large bridges crossing the rivers there, and with the bluffs south of St. Paul, there should be some very scenic shots in this title. The cover images alone look great. This book is a mix of old and contemporary photos.
