Mr. Burke's books are a poignant, beautifully written collection of personal experiences and photos "amplified by longhand legends from the ‘40s and ‘50s as seen by a hobo kid and from the cab.” Author, James Burke tracks steam from the early 1940s to its present use on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge railroad. All stories are hand-written by the author who also took the more than 600 original photos (most never seen in print before) in this wonderful set of two books. Included are stories and photographs of the Santa Fe, Missouri Pacific, Union Pacific, Rio Grande, Frisco and others,
