Between Vann and Bridge Junction (East St. Louis) the main tracks of lished between Muzonia and Godfrey will be worked (on the single-track parts) for the protection of opposing trains as well as trains running in the same direction, and the automatic signals will be used as an auxiliary. Between Mazonia and Bloomington, 64.1 miles, the road is double track, and between Bloomington and Sherman, 5 miles, it is single track.

Berlin-Zossen Speed Trials. 'l'he organization which made the experiments with high speeds on the military railroad near Berlin has determined to resume them. chiefly to ascertain the effect of long-continued use of the appliances at high speeds. The line (14 miles) is too short to be altogether satisfactory for such experiments, but it is already fully equipped and the use of it can be had for several hours a day. Large...

Description : The first volume of this work, covering the period from 1741-1850, was issued in 1931 by another publisher, and is reissued now without change, under our imprint. The second volume covers the period from 1850 to 1865; the third volume, the period from 1865 to 1885. For each chronological period, Mr. Mott has provided a running history which notes the occurrence of the chief general magazines and the developments in the field of class periodicals, as well as publishing conditions during that period, the development of circulations, advertising, payments to contributors, reader attitudes, changing formats, styles and processes of illustration, and the like. Then in a supplement to that running history, he offers historical sketches of the chief magazines which flourished in the period. These sketches extend far beyond the chronological limitations of the period. The second and third volumes present, altogether, separate sketches of seventy-six magazines, including The North American Review, The Youth's Companion, The Liberator, The Independent, Harper's Monthly, Leslie's Weekly, Harper's Weekly, The Atlantic Monthly, St. Nicholas, and Puck. The whole is an unusual mirror of American civilization.

Description : This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1871-04 edition. Excerpt: ...as is shown by the actual trafilc done over the double-track line of the New York Central & Hudson River road, in the last year reported. On this road, with a main line 442 miles long, and 400 miles of branches, chiefly singletrack; trains ran about 11,500,000 miles in one year; whereas on the Fort Wayne road, with 468 miles of main line and 32 miles of branches, the train mileage was 5,400,000 miles; and on the Lake Shore road, with 540 miles of main line and 473 miles of branches, 8,219,893 train miles were made. At the same time the Pennsylvania Railroad, with a double-track main line 355 miles long and 245 miles of single-track branches, made 10,185,233 train miles. However, it may be very well said that the capacity of a line between New York and Chicago will be equal only to that of its most imperfect part: and if a second track should double the capacities of the lines west of Pittsburgh and Buffalo, it would not at all improve the roads east of these cities. The limit of their capacity is the limit of capacity for traffic by rail through between Chicago and New York. That limit is not yet reached, but even a double-track railroad may be blocked with trains. The remedy for this is the addition ofa third track solely for passenger trafilc, by which the capacity of a line may be increased enormously. Freight trains maybe run within fifteen or twenty minutes of each other, on a double-track road, day and night, if the working of the line is not complicated by the running of fast passenger trains on the same tracks. The delays occasioned by waiting for such trains, the waste and wear due to runningheavy freight trains at high speed, in order to keep out of the way of passenger trains, are not easily exaggerated.

Description : Chartered in 1827 as the country’s first railroad, the legendary Baltimore and Ohio played a unique role in the nation’s great railroad drama and became the model for American railroading. John W. Garrett, who served as president of the B&O from 1858 to 1884, ranked among the great power brokers of the time. In this gripping and well-researched account, historian Kathleen Waters Sander tells the story of the B&O’s beginning and its unprecedented plan to build a rail line from Baltimore over the Allegheny Mountains to the Ohio River, considered to be the most ambitious engineering feat of its time. The B&O’s success ignited “railroad fever” and helped to catapult railroading to America’s most influential industry in the nineteenth century. Taking the B&O helm during the railroads’ expansive growth in the 1850s, Garrett soon turned his attention to the demands of the Civil War. Sander explains how, despite suspected Southern sympathies, Garrett became one of President Abraham Lincoln's most trusted confidantes and strategists, making the B&O available for transporting Northern troops and equipment to critical battles. The Confederates attacked the B&O 143 times, but could not put “Mr. Lincoln’s Road” out of business. After the war, Garrett became one of the first of the famed Gilded Age tycoons, rising to unimagined power and wealth. Sander explores how—when he was not fighting fierce railroad wars with competitors—Garrett steered the B&O into highly successful entrepreneurial endeavors, quadrupling track mileage to reach important commercial markets, jumpstarting Baltimore’s moribund postwar economy, and constructing lavish hotels in Western Maryland to open tourism in the region. Sander brings to life the brazen risk-taking, clashing of oversized egos, and opulent lifestyles of the Gilded Age tycoons in this richly illustrated portrait of one man’s undaunted efforts to improve the B&O and advance its technology. Chronicling the epic technological transformations of the nineteenth century, from rudimentary commercial trade and primitive transportation westward to the railroads’ indelible impact on the country and the economy, John W. Garrett and the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad is a vivid account of Garrett’s twenty-six-year reign.
