Hardcover book.

Subtitled: "The Road Switcher: From Steam's Final Decade to Privatization"

Equally at home on mainline or branchline freight or passenger trains, and even in yard switching, the versatile "road switcher" became the diesel-electric standard on Canadian National and its Grand Trunk, Central Vermont, Grand Trunk Western, and Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific components.
Comprehensive photographic coverage includes images from the railway's and builders' files, as well as the work of some of North America's most renowned railway photographers.
