Mexican Narrow Gauge

by Gerald M. Best

First edition. 4to. Bright red cloth, titles stamped in black on the front cover and spine, pictorial train scene on front endpapers, railroad map of Mexico on rear endpapers, 180 pp., frontispiece, acknowledgments, preface, illustrated from photographs, maps, rosters, index. In Mexico, the network of narrow gauge systems was complex and varied. In this book the author groups them under the major systems, the regional ones, the principal short lines and industrials and ones in Yucatan. Some were 2-foot gauge, some 30 inches and some 3-foot. Narrow gauge steam in Mexico is very much the same as that in the U. S. in the early years. Fine, bright copy in dust jacket.
