First edition. Oblong 8vo. Light wear to the corners and extremities, else very good copy in illustrated paper over boards with orange cloth spines connecting each section. This is Platt & Munk book No. 891 and measures 8.5" x 10". Twelve double-sided, illustrated leaves, all connected in such a manner as to allow for one continuous picture of a 10 foot train when fully opened accordion-style. Hardbound in illustrated, paper-covered boards, with a cloth spine. As the book is opened, it shows the station, locomotive, tender, boxcar, passenger cars, a tank car, circus car, poultry car and livestock car, each filled with its respective cargo. These are variously identified as UPRR, Ill.Cent.RR, Penn.RR, SFRR, B&ORR, and NYCRR. The same scene is seen from either side. There is no text. Surprisingly nice, serviceable condition.
