Publication: Bulletin 121 of Central Electric Railfans' Association, 1982, Chicago

First edition. 4to. Blue cloth, titles stamped in gilt on front cover and spine, pictorial front and rear endpapers, 256 pp., double column, acknowledgments, illustrated from photographs, tables, charts, maps, portraits, diagrams. The Texas Electric Railway began in the streetcar lines of Denison and Sherman, Texas in 1901 and, by 1946, there was an interurban line running all the way from Denison to Waco by way of Dallas. The author presents a comprehensive look at virtually all types of electric railroad lines and their equipment. In addition to his comprehensive view, there are chapters devoted to local lines, the Northern Texas Traction from Dallas to Fort. Worth and south to Cleburne, and the ill-fated Texas Interurban. Enhanced by many excellent photographs and documents, this is the definitive work on the Interurban Age in North Texas. Fine, bright copy in lightly rubbed dust jacket with light wear to the spine ends, corners, and extremities.
