CLEAR THE TRACKS! BY JOSEPH BROMLEY/SIGNED1ST rare 1943, BROMLEY, JOSEPH
3 BROMLEY, JOSEPH CLEAR THE TRACKS! BY JOSEPH BROMLEY/SIGNED1ST rare 1943
Whittlesey House 1943 First Edition; Various Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Signed by Author
Orange/red cover with white print. Signed by author on end paper. At the time he wrote the book, probably the early '30's, he was still a regular engineer on the Lackawanna Limited. The book could be compared with Doug Riddell's "From the Cab" in many ways, and it gave a wonderful human interest and behind the scene's view of the railroad industry. Do you know that during much of this period, a second section of freight or passenger train could get an order to simply follow the marker lights of a first section without signal protection? The author describes such a trip in a nearly blinding snow storm. Presumably, if the first section had to make an emergency stop, the rear brakeman would throw a lighted fusee off the back platform of the caboose or rear coach. I still recall his desription of the Lackawanna's Utica, NY, branch, where he fired and ran for much of his career, and of Utica's Schyler Street, and the Grover Cleveland - Harrison election campaigns, and a chartered train, and the descriptions of a few of his firemen. ; Signed by Author
