From the jacket: "This is the first comprehensive, extensively illustrated account of the growth and decline of American narrow gauge railroading, a singular and still not fully understood episode in the history of American transportation. In its heyday, the narrow gauge movement produced a major investment in railroad facilities, incidentally also generating considerable intellectual controversy."
