The 1971-1972 edition reports that the past two decades have probably been the most important in railroading's century and a half history. The 606-page volume contains nearly a thousand photographs, over 200 maps and 150 diagrams. It gives details of virtually every rail line, including the 84,000-mile Soviet Railways which are estimated to have 10% of all trackage and handle 50% of total world freight traffic.
