The biggest cargo of high iron lore and legend ever hauled in one load, A TREASURY OF RAILROAD FOLKLORE contains over a century of the greatest stories, traditions and songs of the American railroad. Here are spell-binding tales of iron horses and iron men – the boomers, brass buttons and brass collars, the hoggers, tallow pots and gandy dancers.

This collection tells the truth behind the railroad saints and sinners, brave engineers, robbers and gamblers, hoboes, empire builders and tricksters, whose exploits and achievements all mark milestones in the history of railroading.

You will meet all the most memorable characters in the history of the iron rail, including Peter Cooper, Theodore Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, Wells Fargo and Casey Jones. You will be thrilled wiith dramatic accounts of runaway trains and epic robberies. You will roar with laughter at hilarious pranks and tricks, feuds and hoaxes, and gain new insight into the heart and spirit of the railroads and the men who made, run and rode them.
