Product Description

The Railfan Chronicles: Grand Trunk Western Railroad, Book 2, Pontiac Operations: 1975 to 1992

“The Railfan Chronicles is a series of books about different railroads from 1975 to 2000. This was a period of great change in the railroad industry, with mergers of large railroads and creation of regional and short line railroads to operate unwanted lines of the Class One railroads. These books will cover this period in photographs taken by the author. The first railroad being covered is Grand Trunk Western Railroad. This is Book 2 of our coverage of this unique Michigan railroad, looking at its operations out of Pontiac, Michigan between the years 1975 and 1992. Book 2 covers GTW’s freight yard and mainline action in Pontiac, the three branchlines radiating west, north and east out of Pontiac and the locomotive roundhouse located there.”
