This historical Simmons-Boardman publication has just been reprinted by special arrangement. More than 1300 pages and all color plates are reproduced with great fidelity. Says Kalmbach Books: "This is an edition as faithful to the original as modern printing technology can make it." The big blue volume portrays the first road-freight diesels and marks the introduction of mass-production diesel electrics for passenger and switching service. Because 1941 was a year of real motive-power transition, most of the book portrays the culmination of development of the steam locomotive. Kalmbach's Dave Morgan observes that "as a reference for locomotive history and development, the 1941 Cyc sets the standard".
