MBI Railroad Color History

Biographical note:

Steve Glischinski was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, and has been interested in railroads since he was 10 years old. He began taking photographs of railroads in 1970, at the age of 13. Since that time, his photos of railroads in action have appeared in a number of books and numerous magazines, including Passenger Train Journal, Progressive Railroading, Railfan & Railroad, and TRAINS. His first magazine articles on railroading were published in 1982, and his byline has appeared dozens of times, mainly in TRAINS, for whom he serves as a special correspondent and Internet News Wire editor. This is his fifth book on railroading. Among other titles have been Santa Fe Railway (1997) and the classic Burlington Northern and Its Heritage (1992). Steve, wife Lori, and son Andy currently reside in the St. Paul suburb of Shoreview, Minnesota.J. David Ingles is the senior editor at TRAINS magazine.

Main description:

They may not be the biggest or the best known, but regional carriers are the heart of the American rail system—and of the Midwest, whose people and places, industry and goods, they connect in one vast network. These regional railroads of the heartland, with their special operations and oftentimes unique equipment, are celebrated here in all their local color, historic power, and splendid detail.

Highly respected rail writer and photographer Steve Glischinksi draws on his own knowledge and archive, as well as on the photography of several colleagues, to offer an authoritative, lavishly illustrated account of the histories, motive power, and operations of twelve of the Midwest’s most vital current carriers, including a system map of every road covered. Featured railroads include the Chicago Central & Pacific; Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern; Escanaba & Lake Superior; Iowa Interstate Railroad; Iowa, Chicago & Eastern; Indiana Rail Road; Kyle Railroad; Red River Valley & Western; Twin Cities & Western; Toledo, Peoria & Western; Wisconsin Central; and Wisconsin & Southern.

Review quote:

“Photography is almost all color, with the exception of a few historically significant photos in black and white. Photo reproduction is excellent throughout. This is a comprehensive book worth its purchase price.” — Trains


“Anyone wishing to make sense of the Midwestern rail map will appreciate and enjoy this book.” — National Railway Historical Society Bulletin

Review quote:

International Railway Traveler, April 2007
“It’s an apt homage to the heyday of rail travel, when trains had distinctive personalities.”

Model Retailer, August 2007
“A valuable resource for railfans and model railroaders alike.”

Review quote:

Railfan & Railroad, August 2007
“The book is illustrated with dozens of brilliant color photos.”
