Descriptions of Name Trains Several books are available that describe many of the name trains (although often in insufficient detail to allow a modeler to determine the exact consist). My personal favorite (because of detail and flavor) is: Kratville, Steam, Steel and Limiteds, which includes streamliners as well as pre-1940 heavyweight trains Other books are: Beebe and Clegg, The Trains We Rode (2 volumes) Dirkes and Krause, The Route of the Erie Limited Dorin, Coach Trains and Travel Dubin, Some Classic Trains (Vol. 1) Dubin, More Classic Trains (Vol. 2) Edmonson, Journey to Amtrak Scribbins, The Hiawatha Story Key, Midwest Florida Sunliners MacGregor and Benson, Portrait of a Silver Lady (CZ) Maiken, Night Trains: The Pullman System in the Golden Years of American Rail Travel Nelligan and Hartley, Trains of the Northeast Corridor Olmsted, Chicagos Passenger Trains Randall, From Zephyr to Amtrak Ranks and Kratville, The Union Pacific Streamliners Rosenbaum and Gallo, Broadway Limited Rosenbaum and Gallo, The Seashores Finest Train The Blue Comet Ryan and Shine, Southern Pacific Passenger Trains Volume 1: Night Trains of the Coast Line Scribbins, The Hiawatha Story Stephenson, Surfliners: Fifty Years of San Diegans Warden, Norfolk and Western Passenger Service 1946-1971 Wayner, Car Names, Numbers and Consists Wright, Daylight Zimmermann, CZ The Story of the California Zephyr Zimmermann, Santa Fe Streamliners Some books about a particular railroad or its motive power describe the lines passenger services (e.g., Princes books on the Louisville & Nashville, the Seaboard and the Southern), also Swanberg and Stauffer, in New Haven Power).
